Williams believed Bafana Bafana have what it takes to beat Finidi George’s men on the road.
The last time we went to Nigeria we beat them. I was part of that squad so I will share my experience with the players,” Williams was quoted by the Citizens.
“And it was a valuable experience in the Afcon, playing Nigeria. I think that was one of our better games at the Afcon, so it is possible to go there and get a result. Why not? We have shown we can compete with the best, we just need to show that consistency.”
