South Africa have never tasted victory in their 11 competitive matches against the Super Eagles of Nigeria.
New Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter says he is looking to break the hoodoo.
The South Africans are up against Nigeria in the 2019 Afcon qualifier on June 10 in Uyo.
Baxtter has confirmed he hired the services of a Manchester United scout for intelligence on the Eagles.
The Englishman has also deployed some of his assistants in Paris to monitor the Eagles, who are camped in the French capital.
The coach believes he has gained sufficient information on Nigeria and expects his side to stun the three-time african champions.
