“The players must not think the party is over but keep on fighting until we accomplish the business of qualifying. South African expect more from us and we cannot afford to disappoint them, especially now that we are almost there”, he added.

“Our target is to beat Sudan and come to Nigeria, for at worst a draw”, Mashaba further added.
