Nigeria coach Gernot Rohr has singled out one player who will be key to helping Bafana Bafana get a result against Libya.
Nigeria booked their spot at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier after drawing 1-1 with Bafana on Saturday afternoon.
As a result, Stuart Baxter's charges only need a point to secure qualification and Rohr feels if Percy Tau performs, Bafana will have a good chance of qualifying.
“It is going to be a big battle. We were also in Tunisia, Sfax to play against a good team of Libya. They saw already here that it’s not easy to beat them. But I think if South Africa play against Libya like they played today, with this kind of movement Percy Tau who’s a wonderful player, they will win it also. Even a draw will be enough I think they will be with us in the next Afcon in Cameroon,” he said.
Rohr admitted the he adopted a more cautios approach against the South Africans, knowing a point would be enough to meet their objective.
