'What Bafana Needs To Do'

Bafana Bafana will face Ethiopia this weekend high on confidence after an impressive start to their FIFA World Cup qualifiers. 

Former Orlando Pirates and Swallows star, Joseph Makhanya has shared his thoughts ahout the upcoming game.

South Africa does not have a good record against Ethopia and despite their current form in the qualifiers, Dukuduku believes they are under pressure ahead of this clash. 

"They need to be as cautious as possible. Everything will be favouring them (Ethiopia) as they are playing at home. Bafana Bafana is definitely under pressure, especially after the previous results," Makhanya told the Siya crew. 

"They can't take Ethopia lightly, we've had bad results that side because of undermining them. It is very important that we at least we get a point, avoid a loss because I feel like that will be better." 

Bafana are still unbeaten in their group and according to Makhanya, to keep their dominance in the group they must avoid a loss against Ethopia.

"We are still in control in this group. We can't lose against Ethopia because that will give Ghana some sort of hope. We must be brutal and win or draw to stay in charge of this group," he added. 

"I hope we won't be defensive, play our normal game. We must not put pressure on ourselves."
