Cape Town - South Africa's Under-23 team has been
inspired by the recent success of Bafana Bafana, who qualified for this
year's Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) on Sunday.
Bafana booked their place at the continental championship with a 2-1
win over Libya at the weekend, and Amaglug-glug are determined to
qualify for their version of AFCON.
They are in a good position to qualify after beating Angola 3-1 in
Luanda on Friday, with the second leg taking place at Bidvest Stadium in
Milpark on Tuesday.
"I have seen a lot of strange things happening in football and must
be mindful of such pitfalls. But we watched Bafana Bafana seal a berth
at the AFCON finals on Sunday and will draw a lot of lessons from
there," coach David Notoane told the SAFA website.
"The lesson from Bafana Bafana game was how they controlled the game and make sure they seal the tie.
"They needed a point to qualify and controlled the proceedings in a
very professional fashion. We will strive to do exactly that.
"I am very happy for Bafana Bafana qualifying for 2019 AFCON. Congrats to [coach Stuart] Baxter, players and everyone."
