- A social media battle ensued as South Africans backed their team, but Nigerian supporters aren’t giving Bafana a chance of victory
- Bafana pulled off an upset victory over hosts, Egypt, on Saturday to setup the mouth-watering contest
The Bafana Bafana team were seen training ahead of their crunch encounter with Nigeria in Afcon 2019.
The management team shared news of the team’s preparations via twitter and it sparked a bit of a twitter battle between the two sets of supporters.
Briefly.co.za noted that the post went viral since being shared on Sunday as it attracted 2 600 likes.
It seems South Africans have now warmed to the team following the initial ridicule during the earlier round of the tournament.
Bafana pulled off a huge upset on Saturday when they defeated hosts, Egypt, to setup the clash against the Super Eagles.
Bafana supporters vocalised their support in response to the tweet, but fans of the Super Eagles immediately dismissed any thoughts of another upset.
The debate made for some good sporting banter as new terminology seems to have been invented by creative social media users.
