Cape Town - Bafana Bafana midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo is eager for South
Africa to build on the momentum from their Central American tour.
Shakes Mashaba’s charges enjoyed a successful tour last
month over coming Costa Rica 1-0 courtesy of an Andile Jali strike while being
held by Honduras 1-1.
As Bafana Bafana prepare for their all important Round 2 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Angola, Mokotjo admits that the 25-man squad is ready for whatever Angola throws at them
"It’s a very important match for Bafana Bafana because it a
World Cup qualifier - and that for footballers is a very big deal as we get to
play in the World Cup if we do qualify so it is very important and we have to
do it together," said the FC Twente midfielder as quoted by SAFA.
"Getting the result will be very key and if we get the lead
in this game we need to frustrate them by keeping the ball.
importantly it is about the result so we can make it easier for ourselves when
we get back home.
"The coach knows what he wants from the players and we also
know what to do so it is now time to show it, and I think we are ready,” said
"We want to carry on with the momentum from the Americas,
but this is a different game, different continent, conditions are different,
its very hot here, but we have to deal with the situation just for a few days
but for a good cause as we need the results.
"I think the boys are refreshed from the club and that’s
good for the national team."
Kick-off is on Friday, November 13 at 16:30 (SA time).
