Tshabalala ready for Egypt
Siphiwe Tshabalala (Gallo)
Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana midfielder Siphiwe Tshabalala believes Pitso
Mosimane can lead the side to a memorable victory over Egypt on March 26
at Ellis Park Stadium.
Mosimane will announce the squad to face the Pharaohs in an
AFCON qualifier on Tuesday - a game which is crucial in keeping
South Africa in pole position.
Bafana are currently at the summit of Group G, with four points
after two outings and Egypt are languishing at the bottom of the
standings with a solitary point.
Tshabalala told Football365.co.za: "It will be a big one for the country and though we are playing at home it will definitely not be an easy game for us.
"But the good thing is we have been given more time by the PSL to
prepare, because if you check after the league games on Wednesday there
is a gap until the beginning of April and also, I have faith in my
team-mates and the coach that we will do well in this one.
"As for me, I will try my utmost best to double my efforts to make sure we win. I will come to the party."
Meanwhile, the Kaizer Chiefs star insists he couldn't have asked
for a better draw in the Nedbank Cup last 16, where Amakhosi were pitted
against BidVest Wits.
"Honestly speaking, I'm very happy we got Wits. I will rather we
play a PSL team than a first division team. First division teams can
cause a lot of problem," Tshabalala concluded.
