Nigeria have already won Group Four and booked themselves a place in the final qualifying round for the 2010 continental showpiece in Angola.
However, Etafia, who is now a naturalised South African, says Bafana must not expect any favours from them, with the 'keeper telling the official Swallows website: "There are no favours in football.
"Everybody knows the history between Nigeria and South Africa, so it will be foolhardy to think that Nigeria will take things easy against South Africa."
He added: "We want to continue our winning run and we want to finish our campaign without a defeat, so South Africa must brace themselves for an all-out attack."
Nigeria will be without skipper Nwankwo Kanu, Chelsea midfielder John Obi Mikel, Everton defender Joseph Yobo and Newcastle United forward Obafemi Martins, but Etafia insists that the 'Super Eagles' have enough firepower to upset South Africa.
"Fringe players like me will be trying hard to impress the technical team. Personally, I would love to keep a clean sheet against Bafana, that's if I'm selected on Saturday."
Etafia also thanked Nigerian coach Shuaibu Amodu for selecting him, adding: "It is every player's dream to be selected to play for his country and I'm grateful to coach Amodu for selecting me.
"I hope that this is one of many call-ups that I will receive, as I would love to be in the Nigerian team for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa," concluded Etafia.
