Cape Town - Bafana Bafana legend Lucas Radebe wished coach Stuart Baxter and his charges all the best for their upcoming 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying clash against Libya.

The fixture will take place on Sunday (March 24) at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Tunisia, with kick-off at 19:00 (SA time).

South Africa are currently in second place in Group E on 9 points while Nigeria have accumulated 10 points and have already qualified despite having to still play the Seychelles

Libya (7 points) find themselves with a chance to head to Egypt in June for the tournament - but only if they beat Bafana Bafana.

Baxter's charges only need a point (a draw or win) to qualify.

Meanwhile, the draw for the 24-team tournament will take place on Friday, April 12.
