Katlego Mashego says that the team is up for the challenge in today’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa, in what is a must win game for Bafana Bafana.
Bafana go into the tie on the back of a convincing 3-0 win over Central African Republic, as they look leapfrog Ethiopia into first place in Group A of the CAF qualifiers.
Mashego, who scored in last weekend’s 3-0 win, told Soccer-Laduma that they have got what it takes to defeat their opponents. He said that they are prepared for the fixture and will take the game to them.
“We are a good team and we proved that against CAR. We are up to the challenge of facing Ethiopia at their backyard. We have been preparing very well for this game and we can't blow it away now.
“We will play as if our lives depend on this game and get the three points we need today,” last season’s PSL Top Goal Scorer concluded.
