Bafana Bafana went behind after just six minutes at Stade de
L'amitie in this weekend's friendly international after Vincent Aboubakar's
free-kick found the back of the net, although a super solo goal from Sibusiso
Vilakazi ensured the teams finished all square.
And while Mashaba was pleased to have maintained his undefeated
start as Bafana coach, which stretches back to August, he knows there are still
areas his players need to work on before they head to Equatorial Guinea later
"The boys did very well," he said after the game.
"But we need to work on the first 20 minutes of the game - we were fast
"It was a good thing to come back from 1-0 down and
make it 1-1. And we still had three or four chances to come back and win it.
But we will use this week to sort that out."
Mashaba also feels his squad are lacking in their physical
presence on the field, adding: "We have to compete, especially physically.
"You saw in the game today, some of the boys were
chickening out in challenges."
