Former Bafana Bafana striker Pollen ‘Trompies’ Ndlanya believes that South Africa must not be concerned about the injuries that have affected the team and bring a fighting spirit into their upcoming three fixtures.
Coach Gordon Igesund has been dealt some major injury blows ahead of their World Cup qualifiers against Central African Republic (CAR) and Ethiopia, as well as this afternoon’s friendly game against Lesotho, in Maseru.
Ndlanya tells the Siya crew that for the team to achieve positive results, they will have to fight hard. The former Kaizer Chiefs striker said they need to be strong, mentally and physically, starting with today's game.
“The main point is the fighting spirit. They should forget about who is injured and who is not in the team, but look at themselves and want to be the ones to win the game for their country.
“Once they are strong mentally, they can overcome everything and win. They have to have the same mentality even in friendly games, like this one against Lesotho,” Ndlanya expressed.
