Speaking to the official SAFA website, Khune called on Bafana fans to buy their tickets to the world-class show-down between Spain and South Africa.
Khune said that tonight’s game against Spain is going to be a tough one, but added that Bafana will be giving it their best.
Khune’s sentiments were echoed by Bafana coach Gordon Igesund.
“There is no such thing as a friendly when you’re playing at this level,” said Igesund.
“No player from either team is not going to work hard on the field tomorrow night because every player wants to be chosen for the squad. Spain are going to be fired up and playing for a win and I wouldn’t expect anything less.
"The top teams in the world are at the top because there are no friendly games. That’s what professionalism is all about,” concluded the Bafana coach.
