The Super Eagles of Nigeria have left Nigeria for Johannesburg in readiness for Wednesday’s AFCON 2015 qualifier against South Africa in Cape Town.
Although the Eagles were billed to travel tomorrow, Tuesday, but decided to leave last night for the important encounter with Bafana Bafana.
After their 3-2 defeat by Congo Brazzaville, the Eagles are desperately in search of a win, which has contributed to the early departure.
South Africa lead in Group A following their 3-0 win in Sudan on Friday.
Meanwhile, Congo, also in Group A, will play host to Sudan on Wednesday.
