Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana striker, Pollen Ndlanya, has called on Shakes Mashaba to keep faith in the CHAN players for bigger matches.

Ndlanya told Sport24 that he was impressed with the majority of players that played for the national team during the two games against Mauritius, where the knocked out the Islanders 5-0 on aggregate.

“I think the group did very well coming under those difficult circumstances especially in the first leg match where a number of players were withdrawn from the squad,” Ndlanya said.

“They impressed me and I hope that they remain part of the team going forward.”

The former Kaizer Chiefs striker also said it is good for football in the country that the national team coach has a big pool of players to select his squad for any competition.

“I think it’s good for the country at the end of the day to have a big pool of players,” Ndlanya said.

“I therefore feel that we should give Shakes credit for that.

“His team playing in CHAN has done very well and I hope they will go all the way and qualify for the tournament,” he said.
