Bafana Bafana defender Thabo Nthethe is confident that his team will beat Mali when the two teams meet in the Chan Group A match this afternoon.
Bafana will meet Mali at Cape Town Stadium at 17h00.
“The mood in the camp is very positive and we are confident of getting a positive result,” Nthethe told Safa.net.
“Mali is a very good side, one of the best in the tournament but we are in a good space and believe we are also one of the top teams, so this match will be a very tight affair.
“We are happy to be top of the log but with two tough matches to go anything can happen so we must not become complacent," added Nthethe.
“We played well in our opening match but we also failed to convert a few chances and against Mali we will have to concentrate from the first whistle until the last,” concluded the Celtic captain.
