Igesund: We Are Ready

With only two days to go before Bafana Bafana open the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations in a tie against Cape Verde at the National Stadium, coach Gordon Igesund told the Siya crew that he is confident on who he will select for the game.

Igesund said that he has analysed and studied his opponents, and will plan according to their strengths and weaknesses. He said that his squad is ready and motivated for the game. 


"We are ready. I know my first eleven. You never know, maybe I have used it in one of the friendly games, or I haven't, who knows. But the players are still fighting for those places in the first eleven which is healthy for the team. 


"As for our opponents, we  know some things about them now. We know how they play and we have a professional company which helps us analyse our opponents and they helped us a lot. 


“We now know who we are going to play against. But as for our team, I know the first eleven already for Saturday," Igesund explained.
