Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana goalkeeper and captain, Itumeleng Khune, believes that the players in the national side have developed a great understanding and that they are performing as a team.

According to the Soccer-Laduma website, following South Africa’s 3-0 win over Central African Republic (CAR) in their 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier on the weekend, Khune is confident that they will achieve if they continue to display that sort of form.

The keeper is looking to carry their winning momentum into the World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia in Addis Ababa on Sunday.

“We are gelling very well. We played as a team and you know me, I am a big fan of team work, because it always works wonders. This is not about individual players or one-on-one, but the team, and in this case it is about Bafana Bafana.
“We scored three goals and kept a clean sheet which was great and we couldn't have asked for anything better. We showed that we were mentally strong after the set back we faced before the game.

“Now our focus is on Addis Ababa where Ethiopia is awaiting us. As I said we want the six points, so we got three and three to go. I believe we can complete our wish and mission on Sunday,” the PSL Player of the Year said.
