Cape Town - Former
South Africa international Shaun Bartlett is confident that the strike
combination of Bongani Ndulula and Tokelo Rantie will be a formidable force
during the Africa Cup of Nations this year.

Ndulula and Rantie featured prominently for the national
team during the Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign and both of them
contributed significantly to its success.
Bartlett believes that the duo will continue to thrive
during the assignment which lies ahead in Equatorial Guinea.
"If you ask me, I think they've been doing well, more
especially in the qualifiers. They complement each other well and I don't see
any reason why they can't lead our attack at the AFCON," Bartlett told Goal.com.
However, Bartlett does admit that the duo’s success will
depend largely on the extent of the preparations during the build-up to the
tournament, which will include an international friendly against Zambia on 4
"It would be great to see them continue with their
goalscoring into the tournament, but that will all depend on their consistency
ahead of the tournament," said Bartlett.
