Former Super Eagles captain, Jay Jay Okocha, has warned the team about the danger posed by South Africa duo, Percy Tau and Thembinkosi Lorch, ahead of their Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final on Wednesday.
The two countries met during the qualifying series for AFCON 2019, with Bafana Bafana winning the first leg 2-0 back in 2017, before Gernot Rohr’s men claimed a 1-1 draw in Johannesburg last November.
After seeing Stuart Baxter’s side upstaged host nation Egypt in the Round of 16 on Saturday, Okocha has picked match-winner Lorch and Tau as the main threats to the Super Eagles’ progress.
“I believe in the team but I’m worried about Lorch and Tau.
“They look the most dangerous players for Bafana Bafana going forward and they have been instrumental, especially in the last game.
“Lorch made his debut and he justified his selection, so these are two players I’m worried about,” Okocha SABC Football.
