Player Watch – Bafana v Ghana

It’s a do or die game for Bafana Bafana tonight, while Ghana know a win for them will most likely put them through the quarter-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations. It’s no surprise to see Group C still wide open, as it arguably hasfour of the best sides at this year’s tournament in it.

We Pick Four Players That Could Be Crucial Tonight:

Bafana:

Eric Mathoho
Tower will have to make sure he keep a close eye on Asamoah Gyan tonight, as the Ghanaian captain is definitely the danger upfront. Mathoho seemed a little off his game against Senegal, but will want to rectify that performance tonight.  

Andile Jali
Jali will have to bring all his experience and creativity to tonight’s game as creating goals and finishing have been a major talking point during this AFCON campaign. He and Furman haven’t quite dominated the midfield as hoped, but tonight would be the perfect time to bring his A game.

Ghana:

Asamoah Gyan
The Ghanaian captain has openly admitted that he isn’t 100% fit, but that doesn’t mean Bafana don’t need to worry about him. He has massive influence on his squad and by him just being on the field, Ghana always seem to have the belief of winning. Gyan is a fine goalscorer and he proved that against Algeria.

John Mensah
The Ghanaian defender was an absolute rock for his team against Algeria and managed to help keep a clean sheet. He will be aware that Bafana haven’t scored many goals this tournament, but they have the capability of turning things in a second. He will have to help marshall  the side from the back tonight and keep things calm.

What is your prediction for tonight’s game?
