Akpeyi -Bafana's target man?-Reader's voice

Akpeyi:Bafana's target man?

The 32-year-old Nigerian goal keeper has already conceded 4 goals in 3 matches at the African Cup of Nations.Though having played more matches than any other Nigerian goal-keeper at the AFCON tournament,it is likely that the 1.86 metres tall goal-keeper will be in the starting line-up.

Seemingly running low on confidence after being dropped against Madagascar and only to be recalled to the starting 11 to face Cameroon(conceding 2-goals) -a match that ended in a win for Nigeria but also showcased a rather feeble Nigerian back-four that battled to contain the blistering pace of the Cameroonian forwards.

Akpeyi will be looking to silence his critics tonight but the fact that he plies his trade in South Africa could well be an edge over him for Bafana Bafana.Furthermore,both of his teammates Ramahlwe Mphahlele and Daniel Cardoso are part of Stuart Baxter's 23-men(who may know him better than anyone else at tournament).

Ahead of tonight's match,Stuart Baxter will be hoping his troops emulate their praiseworthy performance against Egypt.The return of Themba Zwane from suspension, also means that all of Baxter's boys are raring to play.
