Oupa: It’s all about the result


READ: Downs waiting on Manyisa

Manyisa has experienced conditions in Congo before, having played a key role in Orlando Pirates' run to the CAF Champions League Final last season.

'Ace' told his club's website: “We know the crowd in Congo – when we went there [with Pirates], we were well prepared for them.

“Those guys play very well at home and their people make sure they support their team especially if they are doing well.

“We know we have to go there and get a result; so, we must only think about getting a result there… we want a result and we must not care about anything else.

“It is not going to be easy but I think most of the guys here have played tough matches and we will be ready.”

Bafana, who depart on Thursday evening, beat Sudan 3-0 away in their Group A opener before being held to a goalless draw by continental champions Nigeria in Cape Town on 10 September.

Congo top the log with six points following wins over the Super Eagles and the Falcons of Jediane. Bafana are second with four points, three ahead of Nigeria, while Sudan are yet to open their account.
