It was a good test in preparing the team for the tournament. We managed to get good results. But what's important is that the technical team had the opportunity to use different combinations to prepare for the AFCON."He continued: "Everyone is happy and working hard at training. Personally, I’m in a good condition. I have been working hard, even though I will miss the first match due to suspension."When I get an opportunity to play in the other matches, I will be ready."He added: "We have worked hard and plan to qualify for the knockout stage. We are preparing for all the teams in our group. We take them all seriously and we respect them as big football nations. We are ready to compete as we have a good team that's willing to learn and work hard."As Bafana Bafana, we are here to compete and make our country proud. We will do our best."
