After Zimbabwe suffered a 1-0 defeat to Hugo Broos' South Africa on Thursday, head coach Norman Mapeza issued a strong warning for Bafana Bafana ahead of their crunch match in Ghana this weekend.
With Bafana having secured three points against the Warriors at FNB Stadium, they now need only a draw against the Black Stars this Sunday in order to secure a spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying play-offs.
Following his men's defeat, Mapeza appeared concerned on South Africa's behalf due to the conditions in the West African country, suggesting that it will be difficult for Broos' men to find a suitable place to prepare for the fixture.

"It's not going to be easy, we went to Cape Coast there. Psychologically, the guys should be ready," he said at a post-match press conference, according to iDiski Times.
"It's not going to be easy. I hope you find a training pitch there. There's nothing!
"It's not going to be easy. I hope, though, you find a better place to train, but yoh, it's terrible."
While Ghana have claimed 10 points after five matches, Bafana are currently on 13 points and require only a single point on Sunday to make it out of the second phase of qualifying.
The last World Cup that South Africa qualified for was in 2002, with the team participating in the 2010 edition by way of being the tournament hosts.
