According to Soccer Laduma, Masango admits that the mood is good in the camp and that ensuring a first win is nothing but a priority.

“In any major tournament it’s important to win your first game, it gives you the confidence and spirit to qualify for the next round or even go further,” Masango.

“I think we stand a good chance of qualifying for the next round. Our players are hungry to do well for the country and change the mentality of football in South Africa.

“Every game is a cup final in a tournament because you only get one chance, we need to make sure that we get a positive result in our first match and then take it from there.”

Bafana Bafana's Group C fixtures:

January 19 - South Africa v Algeria, Estadio de Mongomo, 21:00

January 23 - Senegal v South Africa, Estadio de Mongomo, 21: 00

January 27 - Ghana v South Africa, Estadio de Mongomo, 20:00.
