The Eagles drew 1-1 with Bafana Bafana of South Africa in Johannesburg on Saturday to qualify for the finals.

Baxter said Mothiba is champing at the bit to take on the Super Eagles.

"Our determination is to win and pick our ticket to the AFCON ahead of the final matchday next year. We need to do that again, to make sure they know if they want to pass the ball around they can do it, but if they lose it they will be in trouble", said the Bafana coach. "But we are here for the three points".

He equally commended the coaching crew, the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) and the Supporters Club, especially Nigerians residing in South Africa who turned out in great numbers to cheer the players, for a job well-done, and assures them of the unflinching support of the Federal Government going forward.

Poor weather delays US space cargo launch to Friday
That same dismal weather forecast led mission managers to push the launch back another day. The unmanned Cygnus cargo craft will lift off from Wallops Island along the Eastern Shore.

The three-time African champions, who arrived in South Africa early Friday, are top of Group E with nine points from four matches, while South Africa are second on eight points.

Defender Shehu Abdulahi, goalkeeper Francis Uzoho and striker Odion Ighalo are sidelined by injury, while Leicester City midfielder Wilfred Ndidi is suspended. South Africa came to Nigeria to beat us and we are here to return the compliment. Those guys are so big - we can not out-muscle them.

Although Bafana Bafana will be at home for the match, from which they won the reverse fixture 2-0 away, Grobbelaar reckons that the fact of a large population of Nigerians in South Africa and their renowned love for football means they could throng the arena more than their hosts. The reward I get is if I see the faces of the people out there are happy, and I see the players proud of themselves.
