Football legends say Bafana are back on track
Phil Masinga believes CHAN would restore pride for the national team.
JOHANNESBURG - Phil Masinga believes a tournament victory for Bafana Bafana at the African Nations Championship (CHAN) tournament would show the continent that the national team is on the right track.
Gordon Igesund's men take on Mozambique in the opening game and with the side having failed to qualify for the World Cup, Masinga believes CHAN would restore pride for the national team.
"I believe this is the only tournament where Gordon can show Africans that we are on our way back to our glory days."
Meanwhile, Neil Tovey says the minimum the team should be aiming for is qualifying for the knockout stages.
"It's a tournament for local players to take the opportunity to make a statement take the opportunity to make a statement, Nigeria and Ghana has tough teams but I think we can be able to do enough to qualify for the knockout stages."
Tovey has also added that the time might be right for goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune to play in Europe.
This is after it was revealed that the Chiefs number one has asked for a trail at German club Stuttgart.
Tovey says Khune has shown that he is already one of the best keepers on the continent.
"I think he's one of the best goalkeepers in the world and in South Africa."
