In the September issue of KickOff magazine, Mashaba is questioned on the targets set by SAFA president Danny Jordaan and confirmed that qualifying for AFCON 2015 in Morocco is not his mandate, but the Soccer World Cup in 2018 is Bafana Bafana’s main target.

“The most important thing is to build a team that will bring us results consistently,” said the 64-year-old.

“We don’t want to win today, lose another two matches and draw the following match, we don’t want that.”

“We need to come up with a team that will be consistent in their performance.”

Mashaba admits he hopes he will be given the full four-year term as he suggests national teams have a four-year plan in place in order to achieve targets.

Mashaba is set to announce his squad for their next AFCON qualifying games, next week.

Bafana will face Congo in their next AFCON qualifier away from home on Saturday, October 11, having beaten Sudan 3-0 in Khartoum and earning a point against Nigeria in Cape Town in their opening two matches.
