South Africa’s dream of going to Russia next year was demolished at the hands of Senegal on Friday, November 10, after the country suffered a 2-0 loss in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter.

Despite the fact that Senegal has already sealed qualification, they will lock horns with Bafana one last time, this time on their home ground in Dakar and the South African head coach is eager to return to Mzansi with a win.

“It is important to finish our campaign with a flourish. We are playing one of the biggest teams on the continent and this is a great stage for players to show their mettle,” Baxter said on SAFA’s official website.

“Let’s make a big push to achieve that. Friday’s match showed we can match the best on the continent. It also showed we can be our own worst enemies at times. We had Senegal against the ropes for most of the first half but failed to take our chances,” Baxter added.

The match is scheduled to kick off at 21h30.
