Parreira wants Bafana focus

2010-03-03 07:57

Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Carlos Alberto Parreira wants his charges to focus on their own game, rather than the threat posed by Namibia.

The South African national team take on their neighbours in a friendly match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Wednesday night.

The Brazilian mentor wants to see his side play the way they know how to and forget about the opposition.

The World Cup winner with Brazil in 1994 told SAFA's official website: "I have some reports on Namibia, but have to be more concerned about our team, we have to go out there and play our game.

"We have to perform against any country because there is no easy match.

"It's an easy match when it's over and we have won three nil or four nil.

"You know that everybody that plays us as the 2010 World Cup host always want to do their best.

"This game against Namibia is not just a game, but it's also a celebration of the magical number - 100 days to the World Cup, it's not only for us but for the whole world as well."
