2026 World Cup Qualifies:

Rwanda hand Nigeria’s Super Eagles early Christmas gift, ambush South Africa in Butare

Rwanda hand Nigeria’s Super Eagles early Christmas gift, ambush South Africa in Butare

The Super Eagles ended 2023 with two disappointing draws, but the Wasps have ensured Nigerians have a reason to smile before the year runs out

Rwanda gave Nigeria the best gift of the year after the Wasps claimed an impressive 2-0 win over South Africa on matchday two of the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.


Having defeated Benin Republic 2-1 on home soil, South Africa were looking to bag another three points against Rwanda and extend their lead over Nigeria to four points.


Rwanda, however, had other motivations, and the Wasps executed their plans perfectly within the opening half-hour inside the Huye Stadium in Butare.

Innocent Nshuti gave the home side the lead in the 12th minute when he raced to a ball over the top and lashed a low effort into goalkeeper Ronwen Williams’s bottom right corner.

South Africa had barely recovered from that shock opener when the Wasps stung the Bafana Bafana again.

Gilbert Mugisha pounced on a defensive error inside the penalty area to expertly slot home a nice finish that doubled the advantage for the hosts.


South Africa battled hard in search of a comeback in the second half but a resolute Rwandan defence yielded no ground for even a consolation goal.

The win against one of the group favourites as catapulted Rwanda to the top of Group C with four points from two games.

South Africa are in second with three points, one more than Nigeria in third.

It would be recalled that Nigeria claimed two disappointing 1-1 draws with Lesotho and Zimbabwe, respectively.

But the Super Eagles have found themselves in a good spot ahead of their matchday three clash with South Africa in June 2024.

A win for Nigeria in that encounter will send the three-time African champions above the Bafana Bafana in Group C.

In the other group match, Lesotho held Gernot Rohr and Benin to a goalless draw in Durban

Rwanda has shot themselves to the top of a group were giant Nigeria and South Africa are also in the mix.

Rwanda have comfortably beaten South Africa 2-0 having drown their opening day fixture.

The win has also given Nigeria a live wire as it means South Africa will now be only a point ahead of Nigeria having played same number of games.

Nigeria will still top that useless group. South Africans are just too unserious with football. I also saw percy tau playing as a winger?

Ghana's game was the most interesting....... the comoros player turned to prime messi🤣 . Dribble pass 4 defenders to to kill the GK with a rocket of a shot. Bankurian(ghanians) have stop replying Twitter and Facebook4 now

South Africa started off with a 2-1 win against Benin to top the group and another win would have extended their lead at the top but Rwanda stopped that from happening.

Rwanda now have four points because they drew their first game against Zimbabwe but they are still top of Group C ahead of South Africa who are the only other team in this group to have won a game.


The other result in the group also worked in Nigeria's favour as Lesotho played out a goalless draw at home to Benin Republic.

Wrong information all group winners qualify automatically and one playoff

Two teams from each group will go to the next round. South Africa will still lose more matches.

With S.A losing to Rwanda and lesotho and benin sharing the spoils,now we have our destiny in our hands. Win the rest our matches and we will be home and dry, but Super Eagles don't like the easy route. They will rathet let fans panick, bite fingers and leave us at the edge of our seat before sealing qualification.

Lol... Christmas gift indeed.

Does this crop of SE players look like people who can win any away fixture in that group?

Can we defeat Rawanda, South Africa, Benin and even Lesotho in front of their fans?

How about our remaining home matches, can we say that the SE won't drop points at home?

The truth is Nigeria isn't going to the world cup. The sooner we realise that, the better it would be for us.
