It’ll Be Tough Playing Nigeria- Bafana Bafana's Captain, Furman



Bafana Bafana have their eyes solely fixed on a victory against their arch nemesis, Nigeria, when the two nations battle in the final qualification rounds of the 2015 CAF African Cup of Nations today.
Bafana arrived in Uyo on Monday night and had their first training session at the playing venue yesterday evening ahead of Wednesday night’s clash.
Despite having secured qualification this past Saturday against Sudan, new Bafana captain, Dean Furman, insists his teammates still remain highly charged and motivated going into their game against the Super Eagles.
“It’s a huge game; having qualified doesn’t change anything for us. It has major significance every time we go play Nigeria,” said the Furman in a statement from the South African Football Association.
“It’s going to be a tough game; they will fight for their lives in an effort to qualify. But we want to fight for our nation, for fans, and for ourselves, beyond that we want to maintain our unbeaten record in this group and it’s important that we finish in a positive way.”
