Baxter's Bafana stun Nigeria with two goal blitz
'Bafana are now in poll position to qualify for Cameroon 2018'
Stuart Baxter could not have gotten off to a better start than a resounding first-ever competitive victory for Bafana Bafana against Nigeria at Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo on Saturday. Nigeria's tormentor-in-chief Tokelo Rantie put Bafana Bafana ahead in the 56th minute, Percy Tau making it 2-0 in the 80th, in the shock result of the opening round of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers. It could have been more - the unfortunate Themba Zwane somehow struck the upright twice. Baxter, on his return to coach Bafana, oversaw the end to the drought against the team South Africa could never beat.
