Nigeria vs South Africa: Team news, form, head to head, broadcast information- AFCON 2019

July 9, 2019 By Emmanuel K. Budu-Annor
The two teams beat defending champions Cameroon and hosts Egypt respectively to secure a spot in the last eight. Live Soccer TV previews the match with information on the forms of the teams, head-to-head, and where to watch the AFCON 2019 clash.

Nigeria and South Africa will lockhorns on Wednesday with one ticket to the semi-final of AFCON 2019 at stake. The teams endured tough tests at the group stages as well as the Round of 16 to book their spot in the last eight.

For the Super Eagles, a thrilling encounter saw them eliminate holders Cameroon in the Round of 16 via a 3-2 scoreline after conceding top spot in Group B to Madagascar. At the moment, the 2011 champions are favorites to make it to the semi-final although South Africa's current form should pose some serious questions.

The Bafana Bafana defied odds to seal progression by scoring a late goal to eliminate host nation Egypt in the Round of 16. It is worth noting that Stuart Baxter's men qualified to the knockout phase on the merit of being of the best third-placed team, having lost against Morocco and Ivory Coast and beating only Namibia in Group D. 

Team news: Who is injured or suspended for Nigeria vs South Africa?

Skipper John Mikel Obi is expected to return to the fold when Nigeria takes on their South African counterparts. The former Chelsea star limped off in the Super Eagles' 2-0 defeat to Madagascar with a knee problem.

Also, Shehu Abdullahi is in contention after recovering from a hamstring injury he picked up against Burundi. No player is suspended for the Super Eagles and neither is South Africa. The Bafana Bafana should also have a fully fit squad for the encounter.
