Former Nigeria coach Christian Chukwu is confident that the Super Eagles’ morale is high and as such, he expects South Africa to fall in Saturday’s 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the FNB Stadium.

The three-time African champions have maintained a 100% performance since they exit at the group stage of the 2018 World Cup.

They thumped Seychelles before defeating Libya home and away to climb to the summit of Group E with nine points from four games. And the former international is confident that the recent impressive form will motivate Gernot Rohr’s men to claim victory against

Bafana Bafana.

“For the matches we have played away we did well. We beat Seychelles which South Africa could not beat in their home, we beat Libya home and away so our morale is very high now,” Chukwu told Goal.

“And we are using that morale to face South Africa which I am sure will give us a good result.”

The Super Eagles have not qualified for the tournament since they claimed the title in 2013 and a win in South Africa ensure they return to the finals.

“Gernot Rohr must map out a strategy for us to beat South Africa because once we beat them we have qualified,” he continued.

“Losing is out of it entirely, so what we are looking for is win or draw.” (Goal)
