Cape Town – South African Coach Shakes Mashaba believes that there is no need for the Bafana Bafana players to see psychologists following Senzo Meyiwa’s death.
According to KickOff, it will be Bafana’s first time playing since Meyiwa was tragically shot dead while trying to protect his Afro-Pop singer girlfriend, Kelly Khumalo.
Mashaba however feels that all the players will rise to the occasion and represent the country and honour Meyiwa’s legacy in a proud manner.
“I’ve heard a lot of people talking about psychologists and all that. Yes, psychological problems are not easy to solve.
"The only thing (we can do) is to pray and, from what I have seen and the high level of performance from the boys, it tells me that they have put it behind their backs and I think we are ready for the game now."
Bafana Bafana will train at People’s Park later today (Thursday, November 13) at People’s Park starting at 15:00. Sudan will also train at the same time but at the King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi.
The clash will take place on Saturday, November 15 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. Kick-off is at 15:00.
