2026 WCQ: We Expect South Africa To Come For Revenge –Ndidi

Super Eagles midfielder Wilfred Ndidi has said South Africa will approach Friday’s World Cup qualifier with revenge in their mind.

The Eagles will host South Africa on matchday 3 of the qualifiers inside the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.

At the AFCON 2023 semi-finals the Eagles edged Hugo Broos’ side 4-2 on penalties after regulation time ended 1-1.

Ahead of Friday’s game, Ndidi believe the 1996 AFCON winners will want to avenge the semi-final loss.

“They’ll come for revenge and for we as a team, we know that we are actually expecting that because it’s not going to be an easy game. When they look back and know the fact that we actually knocked them out in the semifinal.”

Ndidi lamented the late arrival of some Eagles players due to Monday’s Labour strike.

“To be honest, it has affected the preparation because normally we’re supposed to start training on Saturday
