The Nigeria Football Supporters Club, South Africa chapter, says it will be in Cameroon to cheer the Super Eagles during the 2019 AFCON tournament.

Nigeria booked a place after playing a one-all draw with South Africa in a Group E match played in Johannesburg on Saturday.

Nigeria is leading the group with 10 points while South Africa is second with nine points.

Libya is third with seven points while Seychelles is the last in the group with one point.

Osita Okeke, the Chairman of the South Africa chapter of Super Eagles Supporters Club, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on the telephone from Johannesburg that members of the club were happy with Nigeria’s qualification.

“Members of the supporters club join other Nigerians to celebrate Nigeria’s qualification for the AFCON tournament.

“Although two goals scored by Nigeria were disallowed; we are still happy with the qualification,” he said.

Okeke said that the South Africa chapter of the club would begin early preparation to ensure that Super Eagles got total support in Cameroon.

“We will meet soon to start preparing for the AFCON tournament. But, we will liaise with our national body before going to Cameroon.

“We appeal to the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to commence early preparations for the tournament in Cameroon,” he said.

Okeke said the club was delighted that the Super Eagles team was made up of young players, adding that the team had performed well under the tutelage of manager, Gernot Rohr.

The chairman commended the NFF for ensuring that the Eagles qualified for the AFCON tournament after missing the last two editions.
