Mbuyane's Encouraging Message To Bafana...

Thulasizwe Mbuyane is backing Bafana Bafana to finish the job against Libya this weekend, and qualify for this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

The South African senior national team will face Libya in Tunisia this Sunday in their final AFCON qualifying match.

Stuart Baxter’s side only need one point to qualify for the AFCON as they are currently in second place behind Nigeria, who have already qualified after collecting 10 points from the five games played to date. Bafana are currently sat on nine points, with Libya in third place and on seven points in the Group E standings.

Mbuyane believes that Bafana will have no trouble with getting the desired result against the North African side.

“I think we are far superior to the team we will be playing against. Our opponents have to beat us in order to qualify and I don’t see them succeeding in doing that. I trust the boys and I know that they are proud on carrying the nation’s hopes. The nation is behind them,” said Mbuyane.

Bafana were held to a 0-0 draw against Libya in their first leg match played at Durban’s Moses Mabhida Stadium in September.  

“My message to the guys is that they should step onto the field having one thing in mind, and that is to represent the badge and flag with pride. They should have fun as it is their time to shine by qualifying South Africa for the AFCON. Let’s give them our full support, our hope is on them. Guys like Percy (Tau) and (Thembinkosi) Lorch will win it for us,” added Mbuyane.
