Cape Town - Bafana Bafana leave for Congo on Thursday with the history books favouring the South Africans to get a result against a strong Congo side.
Sport24 wants the fans to choose their Bafana XI
The national team's website, have looked at the history books which will make pleasant reading for Bafana Bafana fans.
There have been a total of eight matches played between the two countries - South Africa winning four and losing one while the remaining three fixtures finished in a stalemate.
Bafana Bafana have scored six times whilst conceding four goals.
The two nations will meet again in their all important AFCON 2015 qualifier.
"I am confident we will do well."
"My boys are ready and from what I have seen at training I have no doubt we will not get a positive result.
"We are not complacent but very confident," said Bafana Bafana head coach Shakes Mashaba.
The last meeting in June 2007 in Pointe Noire failed to produce a winner.
The match ended in a one all draw with Sibusiso Zuma scoring for Bafana Bafana under the leadership of Brazilian coach Carlos Alberto Parreira.
The first ever match played between South Africa and Congo was in October 1992, a World Cup qualifier for USA ’94 with Mashaba as the coach.
They defeated Congo 1-0 courtesy of a Phil Masinga goal in the 27th minute.
"I think they are aware of what is at stake and nobody loves a loser, everyone wants a winner."
"I want them to go and write their own history and when the time comes, they must stand and be counted."
"I don’t want to dwell on the negative but would like to focus on our strong points which will help us get the crucial six points," added Mashaba.
Since the first match, South Africa has faced Congo with six different coaches: Augusto Palacios, Clive Barker (twice), Trott Moloto, Carlos Quieroz, Pitso Mosimane and Carlos Alberto Parreira.
Mashaba, Palacios, Barker and Moloto have all registered wins against Congo with only Barker failing to get a win against Congo.
The last win for the national team came in an AFCON qualifier in September 2000, also in Point Noire, where Moloto oversaw the Bafana Bafana win.
In the eight matches between the two countries – four were World Cup qualifiers while the other four were AFCON qualifiers.
