The South Africa national football team and Nigeria drew 1-1 at the FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday afternoon

The draw between Bafana Bafana and the Super Eagles means that Nigeria are already through to the Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon in 2019.

South Africa will need to avoid defeat away to Libya to confirm their place. The Super Eagles won't need to beat Seychelles in their last game but a win will place them at the top of the group.

Early in the game Buhle Mkhwanazi scored an own goal to give Nigeria the lead. The equaliser was created by Percy Tau who spun into space in the box and then fed Lebo Mothiba for an easy tap in.

You can read the fans Twitter reactions from Nigeria and South Africa right here. We can also see some videos which underlined that there were more Nigerian supporters than South Africans at the stadium about two hours before kickoff.

Perhaps the Super Eagles fans were just more visible with their flags and shirts, a trend which the home media found embarrassing to admit.
