“First of all, congratulations to the technical team under the leadership of head coach Molefi Ntseki. We are also happy for the achievement of the players, the very people who did the business,” said Mashaba to the South African Football Association media.

“We have not just qualified for the World Cup, we are about to snatch a double because the AYC is still on and there is a trophy at stake. Win the next match and we are in the final and anything can happen there.”
