2026 WCQ: Draw Against South Africa Better Than Losing  —Finidi

Super Eagles head coach Finidi George has said that his side’s 1-1 draw against Bafana Bafana of South Africa was better than losing.

For the third game running, the Eagles had to come from behind to draw 1-1 after recording the same result against Lesotho and Zimbabwe.

A second half goal from Fisayo Dele-Bashiru saw the Eagles share the points with South Africa who took the lead through Themba Zwane.

The result means the Eagles are in fifth place on just three points after three games.

“Overall, it was not a bad second half from our side, ,” Finidi said in his post match. “I felt we should have done a little bit better, enter the game a little bit quicker it didn’t happen so we conceded that goal.

“But I think the players reacted so well in the second half. It is not the best result that we wanted but a draw is better than losing and we will get our heads up and see how we can win the next match.“

The team will hope to record their first win of the qualifiers when they travel to Côte d’Ivoire to face Benin Republic.

The Cheetahs of Benin Republic secured their first win of the qualifying campaign with a 1-0 win against Rwanda.
