On Sunday, the Lions of Taranga cruised to a comfortable 2-0
triumph over Tunisia while Zimbabwe played to a 2-2 draw against Algeria.
SuperSport United defender expressed his displeasure after they lost their concentration in the closing stages of the game which led to the Algeria's equaliser.
Bhasera admitted that they defended too deep and were severely punished for it.
"Yes I think
we had chances to kill the game off but we didn’t take them," Bhasera said.
"They (Algeria) managed to equalise in the last eight minutes of the game because we
were defending too deep.
"At the same time we took a valuable point going into
the next game against Senegal.”
Kick off is scheduled for 21:00 (SA Time).
