After a four-day training camp in Asaba, the three-time African champions departed Nigeria on Thursday evening and landed at the O.R Tambo International Airport in the early hours of Friday.

They will return to Asaba for Tuesday's international friendly match against Uganda at the Stephen Keshi Stadium.

The Super Eagles lead the Group E standings with nine points from four games and a win against the Bafana Bafana guarantees their return to the continental showpiece since their triumph in 2013.
