Baxter has undertaken to complete his tenure with SuperSport United, but his immediate challenge as national mentor is to prepare Bafana for the 2018 FIFA World Cup and the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Bafana Bafana of South Africa new coach Stuart Baxter has promised the Super Eagles a hard game when both countries meet in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations Group E qualifier in Uyo in June, Completesportsnigeria.com reports.

He added: "I'm really looking forward to this latest challenge".

"Stuart Baxter will name his squad for Nigeria on 25 May". "But I've prepared, and I hope we will be ready for it".

"I hope we will be very competitive with Nigeria".

"We do not envisage any visa hitch for the France camp".

And with a clash against Nigeria coming up in the first week of June, Baxter has to hit the ground running, and the man now in charge of SuperSport United believes he will be able to deliver.

South African Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan and CEO Dennis Mumble introduced Baxter to the media for the first time since his appointment on Monday afternoon and they revealed that the new man had been given a five-year contract at the helm. One ambition I have got‚ while I am national coach‚ is to try and unite the whole football family behind the development of the game in this country.

"Vision 2022 has already started, and that was one of the reasons I chose to come back".

"I believe the nation has enough players to succeed and I believe in my abilities".

The 63-year-old, who will continue to coach Premier Soccer League side SuperSport United until the end of the season, said there was no shortage of talent in South Africa.
