Siphiwe ‘Shabba’ Tshabalala has emphasised the importance of today’s 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia, with top spot in the CAF Group A at stake.
Bafana Bafana go into the game high in confidence, following last weekend’s 3-0 win over Central African Republic (CAR) in Cameroon, however Shabba believes that the game in Addis Ababa will be a real test for them.
He said that there is no room for error, as they keep their hopes of qualifying for the World Cup alive.
“We know the importance of this game. We know that winning this game will take us to the top of the table in the group.
“This is a real test for us and we need to be strong both physically and mentally to pass the test and we are up to the test,” stated the midfielder.
