Igesund: Norway Will Be A Good Test

For the first time since selecting his final 23-man African Cup of Nations squad, coach Gordon Igesund will be fielding his team as Bafana Bafana host Norway.

The South African national team will welcome the Europeans on Tuesday to the Cape Town Stadium for an international friendly as Igesund prepares his team for the 2013 Afcon which commences later this month.

 

The coach believes that Norway will offer his team a good test ahead of the African showpiece, which will allow him to assess the competitive level of his side. He said that all of the squad members in camp are performing at the highest level.

 

“It is good to be playing Norway as part of the Afcon 2013 preparations because if you look at the style of play of both Morocco and Cape Verde, it is European orientated, but there is no point winning against Norway and Algeria and then not deliver on the 19th when we face Cape Verde. 

 

“This is a very new team and we have some different combinations we need to work on. So these two matches are crucial in that they will help the team to become a unit, so that by the time we play the first game, we will play as a unit. 

 

“The Norway game will give us a good test and we needed this game. It comes at the right time for us. I want us to win and take that winning spirit forward to all the games,” the former Moroka Swallows coach explained.
