Bafana Bafana host Ghana this evening in a must-win Africa Cup of Nations qualifier and coach Molefi Ntseki says the players know what they have to do.
Bafana have been in camp since Monday for this tie, that has become even more crucial after Sudan beat Sao Tome & Principe 2-0 on Wednesday to join Ghana and Bafana on 9 points.
It means that Bafana must get a result in today’s game and Sunday’s away game against Sudan.
Currently Bafana remain second, as the CAF qualifiers work on the head-to-head rule, and Bafana beat Sudan 1-0 at home. That means that for Bafana to to qualify they cannot afford to lose that game, and if they want to top the group, they need to win both games.
“The players know what is at stake and what needs to be done,” Ntseki was quoted as saying by SAFA.
“We need to qualify for AFCON and that is the bottomline.”
