Mashaba and Bafana will be at the Moses Mabhida Stadium tonight for the second leg of the 2017 Afcon qualifier with Cameroon.
Having drawn 2-2 in the first leg game in Limbe on Saturday, Bafana’s fate for qualifying for Afcon in Gabon is no longer in their hands, should other results go against them this evening.
However, Mashaba knows that winning all the remaining matches is of paramount importance for the team.
“Mashaba: "There are 9 points on offer, if we win all our remaining matches it could make a huge difference to our course," Bafana’s official Twitter account stated.
Mashaba has acknowledged the pressure that the team is feeling for winning against Cameroon.
