Mashaba Calls For The Nations' Support

U20 head coach, Shakes Mashaba, has asked the nation to come out in their numbers to support the side in their second leg African Youth Championship qualifier in Polokwane.  

Amajita managed to secure a 1-1 draw with Cameroon in Yaounde on Saturday afternoon and the newly appointed Bafana Bafana boss says he it was always going to be tough.

“It was a tough game as expected. They were strong in the first 10 minutes of the game, but we should have scored after that as we had two clear chances. The red card nearly disorganized the team because players were trying to stop Cameroon from getting another goal.

“Their goal was also a soft one which means there are still some things we need to work on to ensure we do well in the second leg. But our boys did very well to come back with a draw. I take today’s (Saturday) match as the first half, so we have to return for the second half in Polokwane to finish what we started,” said Mashaba in a statement.

Mashaba has now asked people to come out in their numbers for the second leg on Saturday , 31 August in Polokwane.

“The score line is now 50-50, which means we have to score first and deny them a chance to get a goal. If they score and we come back then it’s back to square one. The result favours us if we get more goals, but I must admit it takes the pressure off us a bit. We have one foot in and we now need to work harder to get the other foot in. But there is also the pressure of playing at home where everybody expects us to win and the boys might be unsettled, so we know that it will not be easy,” added Mashaba.

“It is also important to note that it has been some time since our national teams put smiles on the faces of the people, and I believe this is the right time to do that. We say to them come in numbers to cheer these boys to give them some boost and make our lives easier so that we can qualify for the AYC.”
