Cape Town – Former Bafana Bafana midfielder John "Shoes" Moshoeu believes that South Africa has what it takes to overcome Nigeria.

According to Goal.com website, Moshoeu was chuffed to see the national side qualify for AFCON 2015.
"I think the current crop has done a brilliant job,” said the former Kaizer Chiefs player.
“They have achieved and they have qualified unlike the previous times when we used to host, and I hope that we can build on that.”
With a game to spare, Bafana Bafana can rest assure that their spot in Equatorial Guinea is booked and a 90 minute humdinger against Nigeria is all that waits. Moshoeu is confident that Shakes Mashaba’s charges can get one over Nigeria at the Uyo International Stadium in their backyard.
"They just need to go there and perform like they did when we played a goalless draw. I think we had an edge over them [in the previous encounter] but it is just that we could score."
"This thing of home and away doesn't work anymore. If you've got a well balanced team like we do now, then nothing will stop you,” added Moshoeu.
Kick-off is at 19:00 on Wednesday, November 19.
