How To Watch Bafana Vs Nigeria

With Bafana Bafana taking on Nigeria in Uyo this evening, the public broadcaster SABC has confirmed they will be showing the match live.

It is a highly-anticipated clash between the AFCON silver and bronze medal winners, who met at the semi-final of the continental showpiece.

It was a tightly contested affair, with Bafana forcing the game into extra-time after Teboho Mokoena’s late equaliser from the penalty spot following William Troost-Ekong’s opener.

Khuliso Mudau had a massive chance to win the game in 90 minutes but it went to extra-time and penalties, where the Super Eagles progressed.

Friday night’s match, is an important 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifier, with Bafana currently sitting in third place in Group C with three points after beating Benin 2-1 before their surprise loss to Rwanda.

Meanwhile, Nigeria started their campaign with 1-1 draws with Lesotho and Zimbabwe, but have since changed head coaches with Finidi George taking over from Jose Peseiro after the AFCON.

As a consequence it’s more than bragging rights on offer, and many South Africans will be keen to tune it – and the good news is, it will be shown on SABC1.

Kick off is 21:00 SAST.
