Bafana players ready for CAR
Bafana are finishing up their preparations ahead of their World Cup qualifier against CAR.
CAPE TOWN - Defender Thabo Nthethe is hopeful of getting a place in the team for their World Cup qualifier against Central African Republic (CAR) at the weekend.
The Bloemfontein Celtic captain could play in the centre of defence after Siyabonga Sangweni was injured.
Nthethe said he could even shift in defence.
"I think the opportunity [to play] will be there. The coach also told me I have to be ready because I could move to right back".
Bafana midfielder Dane Klate said the national team must not think about failure.
South Africa have drawn their first two matches and are sitting in third place on the log as they look to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
Klate said the team must be positive about a victory.
"I don't think we're going to think about failing at this point in time. We have to be positive all the way. I think we have to play with a decent tempo and use our home ground advantage".
