Mashaba: We Need Players With Composure

Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba, lamented his players' lack of composure in the box during their draw with Mauritania.

Bafana ended their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign with a 1-1 draw against 10-man Mauritania.

Thamsanqa Gabuza also missed out a penalty, as Mashaba's charges finished the campaign in third spot.

"To make it worse we missed a penalty, which should have taken us home cut and dry," Mashaba said after the game.

"But I think the boys did very well, we were all over this team, we went on again to conceded a silly goal. The goal they score, the man runs all the way up from halfway to finishing up.

"They scored a goal like this in Mauritania and we had discussed and planned about these things, but performance wise, they were not a side to play us.

"We needed one or two players with composure in the box, control the ball, look at the target, push it to the corner and that's finished."
