Nigeria leave for Rustenburg ahead of must-win game against Ethiopia

The Super Eagles left Nelspruit, where they played their two opening matches, on Sunday morning as they prepare to face the Walya Antelopes

Nigeria left Nelspruit on Sunday morning ahead of their last Group C game with Ethiopia on Tuesday. They flew to the Pilanesberg International Airport and travelled by road to Rustenburg, a distance of 52 kilometres.

The 42,000 capacity Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng is the venue for their must-win encounter against the Walya Antelopes.

The Super Eagles drew their first two matches against Burkina Faso and Zambia and need a massive win against Ethiopia to ensure passage into the last eight.

Burkina Faso top Group C with four points and four goals advantage while both Nigeria and Zambia have two points each. Ethiopia have a single point. Any of the four teams is capable of qualifying on the last day.

The group winners will remain in Nelspruit while the second team will move to Rustenburg to play the Group D winners in the quarter finals.
