'Attacking football key to Bafana success'
Bafana coach Gordon Igesund has emphasised his side’s need to be victorious in Cape Town.
CAPE TOWN - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund says they have to beat the Central African Republic on Saturday to better their chance of qualifying for 2014's World Cup in Brazil.
Bafana will have to make do without key players Tsepo Masilela and Siyabonga Sangweni while doubt still remains around the fitness of Simphiwe Tshabalala.
Igesund says his team selection indicates their desire to score goals.
"It's without a doubt a must win game. I think you can see with my selection of the team. I've picked a very attack minded team with players that can change the game at any time".
"There's no question about it. We have to win".
With a difficult trip to the Horn of Africa looming Bafana will want try and capitalise on their home field advantage.
"You know going away for the next two games against Ethiopia and Central African Republic is going to be difficult. The conditions are very bad and they don't really have decent training facilities. That being said, we need to apply ourselves at home and move forward from there".
The match kicks off at 8:15pm at Cape Town Stadium.
