the players can turn things around for the national team.
"We need all of those
and we need the whole country," said Manyama as quoted by the official SAFA
"We know what has happened in the last two games and people
have lost confidence in us but we must take the lead to bring back the
confidence and everybody else will follow.
"We need their support. We have the quality, we have the
coach and I believe we have the country that can take us where we want to go,
starting on Saturday - like I always say, All for one and one for all.
"We need the whole nation, if we can have a packed stadium,
whenever you touch the ball it builds confidence, and in a way everything goes
right when you have fans behind you.
"I think we are going to need them more
than ever, so come show your love for Bafana Bafana."
With three matches remaining in the qualifiers, Bafana
