• Teamwork will be key for Bafana – Tau

    Bafana Bafana striker Percy Tau believes the only way for them to qualify for the African Cup of Nations is to play as a united against Libya on Sunday.

    The South African national team concluded their preparations for their final Group E encounter against Libya on Sunday.

    Stuart Baxter’s men will enjoy a day off before their final training session at the match venue on Saturday.

    A draw or a win for South Africa will see them join 23 other nations in the continental tournament – the first time ever that 24 nations feature in the competition.

    ‘I do not think individual brilliance will win us this match. For us to get over the line, we will have to play as a unit,’ Tau told Safa.net.

    ‘We have a great squad, and I am confident we will do well. But we will need to ensure that we stay disciplined throughout the match. We cannot afford to lose our shape or even concede – we have to keep our eye on the ball and be switched on at all times. If we manage to defend well, then we are one step away from achieving our objective – the next would be to score goals, hence I say teamwork will be key in this game, every department will have to play their roles.’

    Bafana Bafana against Libya kicks off at 7pm.
