Nigeria vs South Africa, June 2

With the cancellation of Nigeria's friendly against Argentina, the Super Eagles will now turn their attention to South Africa in the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

The game will take place on June 2 at the Moshood Abiola National Stadium in Abuja and will be a rematch of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON 2024) semi-final clash between the two teams.

The Super Eagles got the better of Bafana Bafana during the AFCON, after beating Hugo Broos' side on penalties following a pulsating 1-1 draw in regulation and extra time to deny them a place in the final.

Both teams, though, would go on to miss out on the trophy, with Nigeria ending up as runners-up after losing to hosts Ivory Coast in the final while South Africa won bronze after beating DR Congo in the third-place playoff.

Nigeria and South Africa both find themselves in Group C of the World Cup qualifiers, where the Super Eagles remain winless after drawing their opening two qualifying matches against Lesotho and Zimbabwe. Meanwhile, Bafana Bafana have also won one game and lost the other, which puts them one point ahead of Nigeria in the group.
