Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu says the team will not dwell too much on the debilitating 3-1 loss to lowly Mauritania.

The South African national side was embarrassed by the little-known side from north-west Africa in the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers at the weekend.

According to the Sundowns ace the national team has moved on and is looking ahead to the Nelson Mandela Challenge match against Senegal at the Orlando Stadium on Tuesday evening.

"It was tough in Mauritania and we have put that behind us. We have forgotten about it and we have to look at the positive going forward which is the game against Senegal," Zungu told Soccer Laduma.

"We played against Senegal in the AFCON in January and we know what they are capable of doing and we are ready for that. The team is motivated to do well and win for Nelson Mandela."
