Mashaba: We Played As A Unit

Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba, was pleased to see his side stick to the game plan during their 3-0 win over Mali.
 
 
Goals from Thulani Hlatshwayo , Sibusiso Vilakazi and Dean Furman secured an impressive win for Bafana and extended Mashaba's unbeaten run to 10 games and he also expressed his delight at scoring the opening goal.
 
"We are happy that the boys stuck to our game plan, the plan was not allow them (Mali) to go forward and once we catch them, we'll get them on the break," Mashaba said after the game.
 
"And secondly, we played as a unit, we knew that they got a couple of good players, most of the players are playing abroad but we felt lets keep them at bay, and fortunately we were the ones who scored the early goal and it made our life easy."
 
Mashaba added that they are in the process of building leaders, hence the captaincy changing all the time.
 
"He (Jali) played very well, we are inline with a technical master plan to develop leaders, if you look at changing the captains all the time, more players will come in and show us what they're made of, it is not only about playing, it's a question of leadership."
