Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune says Bafana
Bafana played with the right attitude in their comfortable 6-0 win over Seychelles
on Saturday but should have scored more goals.

The result saw South Africa move top of
Group E with 7 points, ahead of Nigeria (6), Libya (4) while Seychelles are yet
to register a win.
The Amakhosi skipper joked and said he
requested for a cup of coffee during the game as he didn't have a lot to do in
a rainy Saturday afternoon at FNB Stadium.
“I actually asked our kit man if he could
bring me coffee, because I was getting cold," Khune said, as quoted by
“But we didn't underestimate Seychelles.
Yes, they didn't play their best football under those conditions and we took
advantage of that.
“The whole week we had been watering the
pitch and we had been preparing very well, so that under any other
circumstances or conditions we would still play our brand of football.
“And I'm glad that we managed to show
yesterday, as cold as it was - there was nothing we could do to control the
weather, but we controlled our display in getting the positive result.
“We could have scored more, I mean there
was a couple of times where we hit the crossbar and where their goalkeeper
(Romeo Barra) made some great saves.”
