Both Angola and Bafana Bafana played to goalless draws in their respective 2013 Afcon opening games. On Wednesday the two sides meet in Group A’s second round of fixtures, with both sides aiming to record their first win of the tournament.
Angola captain, Manucho, believes this is the time and the stage for the Palancas Negras to get the win. He told the Siya crew that they have studied how South Africa play and although they respect them, they will be playing for a win.
“We have hosted the tournament before and we know how it is. Sometimes the pressure is on you and you have to always impress the supporters. For us we think it is time for us to win now.
“If we can win this one we will have an advantage going into the last game, though it won't be easy. We are all in the same situation and we all need the win. That will make it a difficult game for both teams but we are not putting ourselves under pressure at all," the former Manchester United striker concluded.
