Jordaan, Khune and Fish reacts to Bafana Bafana AFCON qualification

South African Football Association (SAFA) President Danny Jordaan congratulated the South Africa’s senior men national team for qualifying for the 2019 Africa cup of nations in Egypt. This after beating Libya 2-1 in Tunisia last night, two goals from Percy Tau ensured that Bafana finished second behind Nigeria with 12 points. Jordaan was relieved the team qualified for the first time since 2013. Bafana’s first choice goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune watched the match from the side-lines due to injury he suffered few months ago. His understudy Darren Keet played the game of his life when he pulled off great saves to keep Bafana in the match. Khune was lost for words. Bafana Bafana legend Mark Fish was part of the team that won the 1996 Afcon at home. He believes that the team is gelling and can do well in Egypt.

Benni says Matty Rusike left his mark at City as Rusike heads to Stabaek in Norway

Cape Town City bid farewell to one of their players earlier this month, after it was announced that Zimbabwean forward Matthew Rusike had moved to Norwegian club Stabaek. Rusike’s stay at City was unfortunately an injury-ridden one and the 28 year old made just 17 appearances in all competitions in the 13 months he was at the club, scoring 3 times. But while his on-the-field exploits might not have set the world alight, City coach Benni McCarthy says his influence off the field could not be underestimated. McCarthy says he wishes Rusike nothing but the best, and says he has left his mark on the City family. McCarthy says he is confident that Rusike can shine in Norway, and says it was a privilege to work with him for the past year. Unfortunately with the arrival of Siphelele Mthembu and Kermit Erasmus, and with his injuries, Rusike fell down the pecking order but McCarthy says he has played his part in their successful season so far. City began the season by winning the MTN8 trophy and are currently fourth on the Absa Premiership table. They are also still alive in the Nedbank Cup and will face Kaizer Chiefs in the quarter-finals on March 31st at the Mbombela Stadium.

Dominic Isaacs wants to keep Cape Umoya's Nedbank Cup run going

The Nedbank Cup resumes this week and the two remaining National First Division teams, Cape Umoya United and TS Galaxy, will be in action in the first game of the quarter-finals, when Umoya host Galaxy at the Athlone Stadium on Wednesday. Umoya Coach Dominic Isaacs says he has used this FIFA international break to give some of his players some rest ahead of the cup game after they picked up a key win in the league against Real Kings, and now Isaacs hopes to get another good result at home and reach the semi-finals. Isaacs says he knows what to expect from Dan Malesela’s team and does not expect a different approach from Galaxy just because it is a cup game. The former Ajax Cape Town and Kaizer Chiefs defender says there is absolutely no pressure from management with regard to the cup, and considering the team’s earlier struggles in the NFD, their cup run has been a surprise. Though the match will be televised, Isaacs actually would not mind if it was not like all their previous games, and he hopes the cameras will not distract some of his younger players. But fortunately Isaacs has a lot of experienced players like Nathan Paulse, Manti Mekoa, Roscoe Pietersen and Erick Chipeta to call on, who are no strangers to a bigger stage.

Baxter on Bafana after sealing AFCON qualification

Bafana Bafana became the 24th and final nation to qualify for the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament in Egypt when they overcame the challenging match officiating to beat Libya 2-1 at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax, Tunisia last night. A brace from Percy Tau was enough to secure the result for the South Africans after Ben Ali had pulled one back from a controversial penalty. Bafana finished second in Group E with 12 points, just a point behind Nigeria. Head coach Stuart Baxter reflects on the game. Baxter says the penalty against his team was harsh when Darren Keet caught a Libyan player with his boot when collecting a ball. Baxter says this was a pressure moment for his side. Baxter started with a very defensive approach in last night’s game as he looked at securing the result. The Briton has more on why he started very late with his substitutions. Baxter with a strange formation of five defenders, two defensive midfielders, one attacking midfielder and two strikers managed to get the result he was looking for. The Briton who has qualified to his first ever major competition, feels that Tau came out of age in this game.

Topping Group G with eight points, Zimbabwe, much like Bafana need just a draw when they host Congo Brazzaville at the National Stadium in Harare this Sunday. However, if Congo win, they will qualify jumping above Zimbabwe on the head-to-head rule. Breathing down the neighbors’ necks are Liberia and DRC Congo on second and third place with seven and six points respectively, followed by Congo with five points. Supersport United and Zimbabwean striker Evans Rusike is adamant ‘The Warriors” will be in Egpyt come June. Meanwhile Namibian international and Bidvest Wits striker Dean Hotto says it is now or never for his country as they lock horns with 2012 AFCON winners Zambia in Lusaka tomorrow.

Hotto is confident “The Brave Warriors’s bravery will see them make their third appearance at the continental showpiece in Egypt (having previously qualified in 1998 and 2000).
