South African football team confident going into World Cup qualifiers
May 25, 2012
Bafana Bafana, South Africa's national football team, has been making efforts to step up and start winning more games. The team has three matches coming up without a break in between, but the players do not seem to be worried about whether or not they will emerge victoriously.
"There is a very positive vibe and mood in the camp - everyone is looking forward to the upcoming games," said Bafana goaltender Darren Keet. "We need to win the home game first, get to Botswana and win as well. This will get us back to a rhythm of winning."
The team will compete against Ethiopia and Botswana in two 2014 World Cup qualifiers and play a friendly game against Gabon. Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro came on board on Wednesday to strengthen the team's offensive line alongside Siyabonga Nomvethe, according to Sport24.
"We have good young players and we're going to make it, to score goals," Nomventhe told the news source.
