Nthethe: We Must Take Our Chances

Bafana Bafana defender Thabo Nthethe believes that South Africa can qualify for the World Cup in Brazil, but admits that they need to take their chances.

The Bloemfontein Celtic captain has had a fine season for his club this campaign, lifting the Telkom Knockout trophy, and he also won a Man of the Match award for his recent performance in Bafana’s 2-0 win over the Central African Republic.

Now the 28-year-old has set his sights on another victory over CAR, as well as a win away in Ethiopia as the nation looks to edge closer to the Brazil World Cup.

The centre back, who is likely to start this weekend against Lesotho, said, “To go forward we need to finish our build up properly, we’ve been starting well and creating chances, I think that to go through we need to score the goals and make sure we’re at the next World Cup.

“We all know each other pretty well and with the quality of players that we have, I think that we can get the full results against CAR and Ethiopia.”

Bafana first take on Lesotho on Sunday before travelling to Cameroon to take on CAR on June 8 and then Addis Ababa to play Ethiopia on June 16.
