Finidi George Focused on Must-Win World Cup Qualifier Against South Africa

Super Eagles head coach Finidi George says his team is focused on their next 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana.

The three-time African champions have yet to secure a win in the qualifiers, having drawn their opening two games against Lesotho and Zimbabwe. To revive their qualification hopes, the West Africans need a victory against Hugo Broos’ side.

Finidi acknowledges the challenge ahead but remains confident his team can overcome it.

“We know Nigerians would love the team to win all the time, and we’ll just get the players focused on the game, one game at a time. We focus on the South African game and see how we can win that one before we talk about the Benin Republic game. For me, as a coach, it’s either you have a good result, or you don’t have a good result,” Finidi said in an interview with Eagle FM.

“One cannot be scared in life. Like I said, going through life is difficult, you walk through it with the difficulties that you know you’ll encounter. So that’s how I look at life and approach it that way, and football will not be any different. We will do our job and make sure we get the best out of that game, and apart from that, nothing else.”
