Senzo: Congo victory no joke

Premiership

READ: Mashaba wary of complacency

Bafana Bafana replaced the Red Devils as Group A leaders with a 2-0 victory in Pointe Noire over the weekend, with Bongani Ndulula and Tokelo Rantie getting the goals in the coastal city.

"It will be a different match, that is for sure," Meyiwa told Orlando Pirates' official website.

"They will come out fighting, but I'm sure we will have a good plan for them.

"We did the most difficult thing... to go to Congo and get a clear victory is not a joke.

"Here we will stay calm and just do the basics right."

He added: "That victory is water under the bridge. Now it is back to work and show the coach [Ephraim Mashaba] we are ready to face the next battle."

Meanwhile, Meyiwa said he was satisfied with his efforts in captaining Bafana in the injury-enforced absence of Itumeleng Khune. The Bucs number one has worn the armband against Sudan, Nigeria and the Congolese, with the team picking up seven points without conceding a goal.

"It is nice, it shows the coach believes in me. It is hard sometimes to be the captain as you have to be ready to protect the team. But everything is going okay and I'm satisfied with what I have done so far being the captain."
