South Africa hold a more than healthy 3-1 advantage heading into the second leg of their World Cup 2018 qualifier with Angola which takes place in Durban, Moses Mabhida Stadium on Tuesday evening.
This all important qualifier kicks-off from 19:30.
The first leg of this knockout tie was staged in Benguela on Friday and Bafana fell behind inside two minutes but recovered to take control of the tie.
Yes, coach Shakes Mashaba knows his defence is questionable considering they considered an early goal that almost gave yours truly and the Nation a heart-attack, stru!
But boy, oh boy, Bafana showed relentless approach that Angolans did not see coming.
Tomorrow’s game has all the ingriedients for Bafana to win, and no complacency is needed from our boys. Amen!
The unfortunate red card of central midlfielder Andile Jali could be costly but ‘Mshege’ and techincal team should by now have the situation under full control. Jali has therefore, being released to be with family.
Finally, I hope the substitution of Ajax Amsterdam Thulani Serero last week Friday raises no alarm because he showed no gratitude towards his coach by not shaking hands as normally done by players’.
Meanwhile, the Angolans have arrived in preparation for the game.
They’ve been hard at training
