Super Eagles Should Beat Bafana, Secure W/Cup Chances –Enoh

2026 WCQ: Enoh Urges Super Eagles To Beat Bafana, Secure World Cup Chances

With the FIFA World Cup qualifiers in full swing, Nigeria’s Minister of Sports Development, Senator John Owan Enoh has called on the Super Eagles to shift their focus from their recent Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) and concentrate on the crucial task of securing a spot in the 2026 FIFA World Cup.

The Super Eagles are set to face Bafana Bafana of South Africa on Friday at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, and Senator Enoh stated that Nigeria must approach the tie as a make-or-break one, as victory will put the team back on track for qualification.

“The FIFA World Cup is the biggest showpiece in football,” Senator Enoh emphasised. “We cannot afford to miss out on the World Cup again. The disappointment of missing the last tournament, especially after the disappointing home match against the Black Stars, must drive us to ensure we qualify this time.”

Senator Enoh urged all stakeholders, including players, coaches, and support staff, to be fully committed to the qualification campaign.

“All hands must be on deck to ensure the team qualifies for the World Cup,” Enoh stressed.

“I urge the players to get the job done in the first half of the game by scoring early goals, so they are not under pressure in the second half.”

“The upcoming match against South Africa is critical. The players need to put the AFCON glory behind them and concentrate fully on this task. Early goals will be key to taking control of the game and ensuring a less pressured second half.”

Senator Enoh concluded by expressing confidence in the Super Eagles’ ability to rise to the occasion and secure a much-needed victory.

The match will kick off at 8 p.m. local time on Friday, June 7, at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo.

Nigeria currently has two points from two games and sits third with two points in the Group C comprising six teams. Rwanda currently top the group with four points, while South Africa is in second spot with three point also from two matches each. Like Nigeria, Lesotho and Zimbabwe have two points apiece.
