Bafana top Group A with eight points after two away wins against Sudan and Congo, as well as two home draws against Nigeria and Congo.

Shakes Mashaba's men will end their campaign against Sudan at home and Nigeria away next month.

Coetzee, who became Bafana's youngest debutant in Pointe-Noire this past weekend, believes the team is on the right track. “As things are we have a nine out of 10 chance of qualifying for the 2015 African Nations Cup,” the player tells

“Congo is a good team and last night we knew that they will be difficult to break down because they play better away from home than they do at home. They came here looking for a win but they also knew that a draw will not be bad result and they were happy with it. And the match was different to the one we played against them in Congo.
