“After losing the first match of the AFCON to Mali, the South Africans have continuously improved in the competition,” Obafemi stated, underlining the challenge that awaits the Super Eagles in the semifinals.

Obafemi emphasized the cohesion and synergy within the South African team, noting the significant presence of players from clubs like Southampton. “They are a well-coordinated team,” he remarked. “Teams like that are very, very difficult to play because they understand themselves very well.”

Reflecting on South Africa’s performance, Obafemi praised their telepathic understanding on the field and their confident defence, factors that could pose challenges for Nigeria in the upcoming match.

Obafemi’s insights come as the Super Eagles prepare to face South Africa in the semifinals, with both teams eyeing a spot in the tournament final.
