KickOff, Mashaba and the players arrived in Mbabane on Tuesday and the 64-year-old mentor says that won’t take the 163rd ranked team in the world for granted in their own back yard.
"We are going to put the best team out against
Swaziland," said Mashaba.
"We are not going to put a weaker team out because we
are playing Swaziland. We are going to give Swaziland the respect they deserve. Like
I indicated before, let's start being champions in our region. It gives us a
chance to test amongst ourselves.
"Swaziland came as first option, let's take them and
see what they can do for us. Maybe they can help us here and there and we also
help them here and there."
Bafana Bafana are
set to play on Wednesday, March 25 against Swaziland (19:00 kick-off) before
hosting Nigeria at the Mbombela Stadium on Sunday, March 29 (15:00 kick-off).
