Nigeria were stunned by South Africa at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium after bowing to a 2-0 defeat in their opening qualification fixture for the 2019 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Tokelo Rantie and Percy Tau second half goals handed Bafana Bafana maximum points and their first ever victory against the Super Eagles in a competitive fixture.
However football fans expressed their dissatisfaction with the Super Eagles' performance and lashed out at the 2013 Afcon champions who couldn’t manage a shot on target for the entire duration of the game.
Overconfidence did us in here. That and some junk players. Good thing it's only Afcon and not the World Cup. — Sawyerr (@MrSawyerr) June 10, 2017

Arrogance. From the head all the way down. Total lack of respect for the opponent. This team is simply too shallow. Simple. #NGARSA— iBD10 (@booday10) June 10, 2017
