Both forwards were on the score-sheet after Bafana Bafana brushed aside Congo in their own back yard with a 2-0 victory.

According to KickOff, Bongani Ndulula is ignoring personal glory for the moment to concentrate on the national team's quest to qualify for the AFCON 2015 finals.  

"Yes, it is my hope and I think we will do well for the country," said Ndulula.

"We are here to take the country to Afcon next year and nothing else.

"Even the coach has emphasized that we must go there in these Afcon matches and enjoy the occasion and I hope with this showing, we will go through."

Ndulula maintains that scoring goals is just part of his job and that it takes a concerted team effort to ensure Bafana Bafana come away with the required results.

"As a striker you have to score goals but at the same time I can't take the glory for myself because we play as a team.

"So yeah, I can't take the credit on my own." add the AmaZulu striker.

Bafana Bafana will play Congo at the new Peter Mokaba Stadium on Wednesday, October 15 in Polokwane in the return AFCON qualifier.

Kick-off is scheduled for 20:05.
