According to time table the Bafana Bafana coach, Stuart Baxter, drew, the South Africans were supposed to assemble for the first time under the new coach on Saturday.
The new man at the helms who prides himself as the only person to have led a Bafana Bafana squad that beat the Super Eagles in a friendly match 14 years ago, is still battling on the possible composition of his starting line-up and who should captain his team.
Information reaching Sports Village Square from South Africa revealed that the coach made a desperate call to another coach, Gavin Hunt of Bidvest Wits, on Friday asking for tips on his team selection and how to go about the challenging task of facing the Super Eagles on Saturday.
According to a South African media organisation, Sunday Times, Baxter is aware of possible comparison with his predecessor, Ephraim Mashaba.
He therefore decided to engage in intelligent gathering on Nigeria and seeking advice from colleagues. He reportedly engaged a Manchester United scout to help monitor Super Eagles’ training and two matches in France.
The South Africans who began camping on Saturday are expected to depart for Nigeria on Wednesday.
