According to KickOff, Mashaba insist that his players should
not underestimate Swaziland when the two sides meet.
"People will never understand and you know the problem
with players, they tend to look at the opposition and say it's an easy team.
You get shocked when held into a draw or beaten,” said Mashaba.
"This is what we want to test the players' mind...
their thinking against Swaziland. Again the approach for the game for the two
teams is different in a lot of aspects.”
"The Nigerian team is very strong physically,
aggressive and we look at graduating from Swaziland to Nigeria game and see how
the players react to that."
Bafana Bafana are set to play on Wednesday, March 25 against
Swaziland (19:00 kick-off) before hosting Nigeria at the Mbombela Stadium on
Sunday, March 29 (15:00 kick-off).
