Having played out to a 1-1 draw with Congo in Polokwane on
Wedensday, South Africa are top of Group A with eight points, one ahead of
Congo in second.
The 29-year-old Mbatha, who is currently sidelined by
injury, believes without a doubt that Shakes Mashaba's side will make it to
next year's showpiece.
Speaking to Football411, he said: ”We will definitely beat
Sudan and Nigeria next month, because the boys are doing well at the moment.
"In my opinion I think it was not the best game but all
that matters is we did not lose, maybe the bad weather also contributed. I am
100 percent sure that we will go through.”
Mbatha is taking his recovery one day at a time, and
revealed he is edging towards a return.
“I am one or two weeks away from a full recovery and
hopefully when I do I will have game time," he explained.
"At the moment we are busy at training preparing for
our next opponent.”
