“They are young and raring to give everything for the country. That is the attitude I like from players,” said Mashaba.

According to KickOff, Mashaba has made it clear that Bafana Bafana’s focus is getting ‘three points’ and get their qualifying campaign off to a good start.

“We would want to open this qualifying round of matches with three points. That is what we came here for - a win,” said the 64-year-old.

Mashaba reveals that he will implement his team’s announcements earlier than usual so that the starting XI could get used to conditions and prepare them mentally.
