Shakes Mashaba's charges failed to qualify for Afcon and ended their campaign with a 1-1 draw with Mauritania at home.

The SuperSport United midfielder insists they need to rectify their worrying form at home ahead of the World Cup qualifiers.

“Ultimately that’s why we did not qualify from this group – to take five points from Mauritania and Gambia, with no disrespect to them, is simply not good enough for us and something we have to put right in our next campaign," Furman said in a press release.

"We can’t drop points especially at home, we need to capitalise when playing in front of our fans."

“On the night against Mauritania we were a goal down and showed great strength to come back, but unfortunately we could not get that goal that would have given us a welcome three points. But we have to take the positives, I think the performance was good.”

Bafana will now face Egypt in the Nelson Mandela Challenge on Tuesday evening and head into the clash as defending champions.
 
“It is a great cause, the Legacy of Nelson Mandela lives on. This is an important game for us and something we are looking to win because it is something very special," he added. 
 
"Hopefully we will be going for our third victory in a row. Whenever we play a game for our national team, we want to win and this match has a little bit more added to it."
