Bafana Target Zim Win

Bafana Bafana will be looking to continue with their winning ways when they take on Zimbabwe in an international friendly at the Orlando Stadium tonight.

Bafana handed Botswana a 4-1 drubbing in a FIFA World Cup qualifier in Durban last weekend, however they missed out on qualifying for the next round of the qualifiers after Ethiopia won their game against Central African Republic and thereby maintaining their position at the top of Group A.

Bafana defender Thabo Nthethe believes that a win against Zimbabwe will boost the team's morale following the weekend's disappointment.

“We need to forget about what happened on Saturday and focus on beating Zimbabwe. With the morale down following our failure to qualify for the second round of the World Cup qualifiers, a win against Zimbabwe will lift our spirits,” Nthethe told the Siya crew.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Pirates players, bar striker Kermit Erasmus, have been released from the Bafana squad to give Bucs coach Roger de Sa a full week to work with his players ahead of Saturday's CAF Champions League clash against AC Leopards in Congo.

Erasmus is cup tied and won't be traveling with Pirates to Congo, so he has been allowed to remain with Bafana.
