Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr feels that if Bafana Bafana can replicate their performance against his team when they face Libya in the final round of AFCON qualifiers they will progress to the tournament proper in Cameroon.

Defender Shehu Abdulahi, goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and striker Odion Ighalo are sidelined by injury, while Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is suspended.

"Them too, they know that it's not an easy game for them, but we'll have to wait after 95 minutes [to see how it pans out]". But we can not continue to talk about that.

"I am happy we have a young team determined to achieve".

Rohr switched to a 3-5-2 formation for the game, which he says worked for the heat and the altitude of Johannesburg by making them more compact.
