Senate Chief Whip, Dr Orji Uzor Kalu, has issued a strong warning to the Super Eagles ahead of the team’s quarterfinal clash against South Africa.
Kalu urged Gernot Rohr’s team to be cautious of the fast breaks and counter-attacks of the Bafana Bafana.
Nigeria and South Africa will lock horns today in a quarter finals clash at the ongoing African Cup of Nations in Egypt.
The former Governor who helped Enyimba football club to two times Champions League trophy during his time as Abia State Governor said the South Africans are always very quick with passes and they enjoy to use fast breaks to take down their opponents.
The Bafana Bafana scored their only goal three minutes to full time against host and tournament favourites, Egypt, courtesy of a fast counter-attack.
The former Abia State governor stressed that the Super Eagles need maximum concentration to check the rampaging South Africans.
“We have a solid team, but we must check the fast moves and counter-attacks,” he told Sun.
