They outclassed the stubborn Sudanise 2-1 to automatically qualify and top the A group, which is the first after years’ for our boys.
With eleven points safely guarded, Bafana knows a win or a draw against nemesis Nigeria will be a done deal.
Yes, we need to get this monkey off our back and register that much needed win, having not beaten ‘The Super Eagles’ in any competitive match.
However, coach Shakes Mashaba has alluded that the major concern is our back-four: the last line of defence. It’s a bit shaky.
Against Sudan, at times the defence was caught in sixes and sevens that allowed the visitors to score and as a result, brought them back into the game.
We hope at yesterday’s light training in Soweto-Nike Stadium, such problems were addressed and attended to by Mashaba’s technical team and the boys, before they jetted-off to Nigeria in the evening in a chartered-flight.
Yes, we’re home and dry but this monkey must be dealt with. Finish & Klaar!
As ‘Mshege’ would boast”we’re good travelers” we pray our boys would come to the party and break this hoodoo haunting us.
We need that ‘juju’ magic again bra Shakes!
Meanwhile, after the suspension of Morocco, who cited the epidemic Ebola for not hosting the Afcon Finals, Equatorial Guinea has been identified as host country. This automatically means they will play in the tourney having not qualified during group stages.
