The Flying Eagles were in control for most of the first half, however they were unable to trouble Amajita shot-stopper Khulekani Kubheka.
In the second half, Senong’s charges showed a bit more adventure and manage to a few passes together following the introduction of Promise Mkhma at halftime.
The Paul Aigbogun side took control for the rest of the second half in search of a winning goal that would secure their spot in the knockout round.
Unfortunately, that was the trend for the rest of the half as Nigeria move to four points while South Africa sit on two points.
Amajita will face Burundi in their final Group A clash on Friday evening.
