South Africa 2-0 Nigeria – Bafana Bafana beat Super Eagles to another player after Michael Dokunmu

In a pivotal move to secure the budding talent of Nigerian descent Ime Okon, South Africa’s head coach Hugo Broos has invited the 18-year-old sensation to the national team ahead of their two friendlies in September, reports. 

Okon is a surprise inclusion in Hugo Broos’ latest Bafana Bafana squad to face Namibia and Congo DR.

The teenager’s invitation marks the second instance in recent times where a player of Nigerian descent has pledged their future to South Africa, following in the footsteps of Michael Dokunmu.
