Rohr issues a warning to Bafana Bafana


Nigeria head coach Gernot Rohr says his side will do whatever it takes to get a good result in Saturday's Africa Cup of Nations Group E qualifier against Bafana Bafana.



A draw will see the Super Eagles qualify for the AFCON tournament in Cameroon next year, whereas Bafana can go through with a victory.

Nonetheless, it appears the West African giants are focused on ensuring they get revenge after losing 2-0 to South Africa in the opening game of the competition in Uyo.

As such, Rohr, who led his side to the 2018 World Cup in Russia, has made it clear his side are intent on getting the result they need.

Speaking to the Nigerian Football Association's official website, the German mentor said: "Our mission in Johannesburg is simple: qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations.

"We are not thinking of anything else. We want the ticket in our pocket before the final matchday."

Saturday's encounter is set to take place at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, with the South African Football Association urging fans to buy tickets and to get behind the teams. Kickoff is 15:00.
