Bafana Bafana Head Coach Molefi Ntseki is confident that South Africa will ‘do the business’ against Sudan this evening in their final Afcon qualifier, and book their place to the finals in Cameroon.
Bafana go into this game knowing that any results other than a defeat will see them qualify for the tournament. They are currently on 10 points in the group, while Sudan are on 9. Ghana, who also have ten points, have already qualified.
South Africa have won their only previous encounter in Sudan, winning 3-0 in 2014. They have beaten Sudan in all three previous meetings historically.
While Sudan have won two games at home these qualifiers, they do not boast an impressive record at home of late, and those two victories are actually the only two matches they’ve won in their last ten home fixtures.
“So far so good. We travelled well from South Africa and we have been treated well up until now. We expect a tough match on Sunday being the last match of the group and the last match of the qualifiers,” Ntseki told SAFA media.
“Every player, every country and every coach expects to do well in such matches. Either way, we can play to win or for a draw; we will make use of any option available to us as long as we go on and qualify for AFCON, that is the important thing.”
“I would like to thank all South Africans including the support from the Association and am asking them to continue supporting this team.”
“I am confident that we will do the business. We are here to represent our country and we are here to play to qualify for AFCON. We respect Sudan but we should do the business and all we ask for is Fair Play.”
