According to KickOff, the Kaizer Chiefs defender reveals that Bafana are heading to Nigeria to get all three points.

“For a change the pressure is off our shoulders,” Mashamaite says.

“We are going there with freedom to express ourselves and get the maximum points.”

Following the successful qualification Sport24 reported that Mashamaite admitted that is was because diminished egos.

“There are no egos in this squad, everyone wants to come into this team and do well, and I think that has been the secret of our qualification.”

Bafana will face Nigeria in the final Group A game at the Uyo International Stadium on Wednesday, November 19.

Kick-off is at 19:00.
