Nigeria and Bayern Leverkusen striker, Victor Boniface, has disclosed that the Super Eagles win over Bafana Bafana in the semi-finals at the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations in Cote D’ivoire would make it difficult to get a South African visa.
Boniface diclosed this in a post via his X handle after Nigeria beat South Africa 4-2 on penalties.
Goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali and Kelechi Iheanacho were the heroes for Nigeria during the penalty shootout.
Nwabali saved two penalties, while Iheanacho sealed Nigeria’s qualification to the final with the decisive penalty kick goal.
The full time and extra time of the highly tensed semifinal clash ended in a 1-1 draw following two second half spot kick goals from both sides.
Reacting, Boniface, who was ruled out of the tournament due to a hamstring injury, wondered how difficult it would be getting a South African visa as result of the win at point
“To be NIGERIAN…You no no Wetinx God do for you This country so sweet,” the Bayer Leverkusen man wrote on X.
“To get South Africa VIsa go hard die now,” he added.
Nigeria will now play the host country, Cote D’ivoire in the final of the tournament on Sunday, while South Africa and Democratic Republic of Congo will lock horns for the third place prize on Saturday.
