Bafana Bafana will have to wait until the final match against Libya to confirm qualification to the 2019 AFCON finals after playing to a 1-1 draw with the Super Eagles at FNB Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
The grudge encounter had all the ingredients of a thriller and both teams got as much as they received and the draw which makes sure Nigeria is the first to qualify from the group was a fair result.
Nigeria has 10 points, South Africa 9 and Libya who beat Seychelles has 7 points.
South Africa’s last game is against Libya while Nigeria welcome winless Seychelles at home in March next year.
