The South African national team suffered a 2-1 loss to Cape Verde in the first leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers on Friday, September 01.

Bafana are now third placed in group D standings, however, a win for Baxter’s charges tomorrow, September 05, will ensure a spot for South Africa in next year’s prestigious competition.

Speaking to the South African Football Association official website ahead of tomorrow’s clash, Baxter said, “It is definitely going to be an open game considering Cape Verde would be more confident and we would go for it. Cape Verde would be feeling confident, hopeful and I foresee a very competitive game.”

“I am one person who doesn’t want to take things for granted because, in such instances, anything is possible. We need to adjust quickly and respond to Friday’s setback. The good thing is that Burkina Faso and Senegal drew which means we are all even again and the race is on,” Baxter added.

If u are as smart as u want us to believe u shouldn't have selected Manyama ahead of Tau,Furman ahead the creative and strong Jali and lastly Mathoho shouldn't have played ahead of an inform Morgan Gould and with Williams bad record in Bafana jersey Sandilands was a perfect and obvious choice in goals, thanks for nothing coach

I wonder who the genius at SAFA is who decided to play the game In Durban. Sea level and climate identical to Cape Verde. They'll feel more at home than us!

This m@mpara took Finland from around top 50 in Fifa Rankings and left them languishing in the triple figures.Lebo Phiri has been playing regular football for Brondby and now Guingamp but hasn't been called.Instead Daylon Claasen,mxm

I still maintain that the only reason this so-called "Sir Baxter" was hired by clueless Danny Jordan is because he's Hero-Worshipped at Naturena and the mostly pro-Chiefs media campaigned for him and for Bra Shakes to be fired.Nothing special about this Javelin tactics master!
