Baxter told his players to remain humble and focus on the game at hand.
“We have to remain very humble. We won’t be overconfident going to the game against Nigeria; one of the powerhouses in the continent. We played well against them before but we should know this is a totally different match. We are looking forward to this game, and hopefully we will be mentally and physically ready. Beating Egypt, the host nation and among that crowd was massive, but we worked and we did it. We can do the same again against Nigeria. One game doesn’t make us the favorites, but we go to every game with a chance to win. We are respecting Nigeria but we are not fearing them. said Stuart Baxter (Coach, South Africa)
