Yeye: Don’t undermine Congo


The South Africans secured a hard-fought 2-0 win against Claude Le Roy’s team in Pointe Noire, leaving them on the verge of qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations in Morocco.

Bafana still have a home game to come against Sudan, before travelling to bottom-placed African champions Nigeria, but ‘Yeye’ says all their focus must be on the match against Congo.

“Without taking away anything from them because they are a good side, I believe we can pull a double on them,” the Kaizer Chiefs midfielder says. “I believe we can get maximum results.

“From what I saw, if we undermine them they will shock us. But also, I believe in our players, I believe in the team spirit that is prevailing, I believe in the technical team and I think we have what it takes to do well if we work harder than in the previous encounter.” 

Letsholonyane will win his 50th cap for Bafana should he play tomorrow, having made his debut in a friendly against Malawi in September 2008.
