The match between Bafana and Swaziland will take place at Somhlolo National Stadium in Mbabane tonight at 20h30.

“We should have a good game and I don’t think the ranking will be an issue because international football has changed a lot. This is a going to be a good exercise for us as we prepare for CHAN,” Igesund told the official Safa website.

“I am trying to give as many players a chance as possible because I have a big pool of players lining up to play in the CHAN tournament and I have to select 23 that will represent South Africa.

”So I am going to field a strong squad because I don’t want to disrespect anybody but just want to win the match and get my preparations for CHAN going. We would like to score as many goals as possible. The players that are here are fighting for their places which will make this match even more exciting.”

Meanwhile, Bafana defender, Thabo Nthethe, is confident that his team will beat Swaziland tonight. “We are going to approach this game like any other game, wanting to win,” said Nthethe.

“We know we are playing away so they are not going to make it easy for us more so with all the support behind them in the stands. But I do believe we have the quality to get a positive result against Swaziland,” concluded Nthethe.
