Broos claimed the Super Eagles will be eager not to disappoint their fans which will put them under pressure to win the game.

“We’re no longer afraid, not scared of Nigeria’s ‘Super players’. The onus is on Nigeria not to disappoint their fans who missed the glamour of the last World Cup in Qatar because the Super Eagles did not participate,” Broos said at a press conference in Uyo.

He added: “So, they have to now prove to their fans that their 2023 AFCON feat was not a fluke. We have made our mark and South Africans now believe in Bafana Bafana.
