New Eagles’ coach Gernot Rohr has started brilliantly, with West Africans yet unbeaten in four games, and has led the team to the top of their World Cup qualifying group, after beating Zambia and Algeria in their first two games of the series.
The game against South Africa will also be the Super Eagles’ first competitive game of the year.
Both teams also faced-off in the race for the 2015 AFCON, with the Bafana Bafana qualifying at the expense of the Super Eagles.
