Super Eagles coach, Jose Peseiro, has predicted a ‘tough’ game when his team face South Africa in Wednesday’s 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, semi-final clash.

Peseiro insisted that the Bafana Bafana are a good team, adding that the Super Eagles need to beat them.

Nigeria head to the game after beating Angola in the last-8, while South Africa defeated Cape Verde.

“It’s important to win the AFCON, beat South Africa. Everybody knows when I signed the contract I came here to win the AFCON but we have not won yet, we need to beat South Africa, after that play the final,” Peseiro told Hot Sports.

“More important now is beating South Africa which is our focus. It will be a tough match against a good team.”

He added, “We are happy, now we start to work and prepare for the next match. more importantly everybody recovers well on and off the pitch, rest well, sleep well and eat well so they can be 100 percent against South Africa.”

The kick-of time for the match is 6 pm, Nigerian time.
