According to KickOff, Mashaba confessed that South Africa are looking forward to the start of the tournament positive results in their friendly encounters.
“We now know what we are going to face in Equatorial Guinea, and yes it is going to be tougher than this. But I would like to say to our boys, job well done,” said Mashaba.
“Mali had almost all their players from abroad which is clear indication that it was not an easy game."
The 64-year-old mentor knows that other national sides are beginning to take a keen look at Bafana Bafana after their recent performances but Mashaba let it be known that they will show up for every game and show their opponents who they are.
“When we started nobody gave us a chance, now people are starting to raise eyebrows and asking who are these ones coming from the South Africa?
“But they will know when we play them.”
