Johannesburg - Forward Bernard Parker insists Bafana Bafana will do everything they can to beat Egypt in Cairo next month.

The South African national team are set to meet the Pharaohs in an important African Cup of Nations qualifier on June 5.

Parker has revealed that the team are ready for the match and are eager to keep their impressive recent form going.

"As one of the senior players in the team I have to guide new Bafana players because away games are not easy," Parker told the Sowetan.

"But we did well against Tanzania and I believe we can continue from where we left off."

Wayne Sandilands is anticipating a difficult match, but has faith in his fellow team-mates that a victory is not out of the question.

The goalkeeper added: "It is very difficult to beat Egypt in their territory because of the massive support they enjoy but we are ready for the challenge."
