Bafana Bafana head coach, Molefi Ntseki has reacted to the World Cup qualifying draw.
The South African national team have been drawn in group G of the African qualifiers, alongside Zimbabwe, Ghana and Ethiopia.
Head Coach Nsteki’s side have become regular opponents of Ghana, having already played them in the Africa Cup Of Nations qualifiers, with the return fixture still lined up.
“We are talking the World Cup qualifiers, this was a brilliant World Cup draw, we are in the top 40 so, the expectation is for us to play so that we can qualify for the top 20 and go down to the top 10 and then the last five goes to Qatar,” he told the media in Egypt last night.
“Every draw is a tough draw because the expectation is that all the teams that are in the top 40, they all are playing to qualify, so we are fully aware of Ghana and their qualities, same with Zimbabwe and Ethiopia.
“All the teams that are in our group, we will give them the same respect. It will be a tough one but we are hopeful and looking forward to a good start,” Ntseki added.
