Confident Bafana jet-in for 2018 CHAN decider

Sports Confident Bafana jet-in for 2018 CHAN decider

Bafana Bafana insist that the pressure is very much on Zambia heading into Saturday’s 2018 CHAN final round last leg qualifier at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Zambia rallied to hold Bafana 2-2 away in the first leg on August 12 in East London.

A scoreless draw at Levy for Zambia will suffice for them to qualify on away goals rule for January’s finals in Kenya.

“Zambia has done well to score two away goals that will obviously be a disturbance for us,” Bafana assistant coach Thabo Senong said at lunchtime on Thursday after landing with Bafana from Johannesburg at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola.

Senong is in charge of the final leg because Stuart Baxter is away preparing Bafana’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Group D home and away qualifier programme against Cape Verde in September.

“Whatever happens if they defend they will be in a panic mode, if they attack it will be open for us,” Senong said.

“We still believe that it’s going be a nice encounter.

“We have not given up yet we still believe our team can still score goals so we just need to manage a few things.”

Senong also insisted that the recall of over 10 players by their respective clubs’ for league action would not be a factor heading into the final leg decider.

“It is the nature and beauty of this game that you combine a team quickly and make sure that they can play well on Saturday,” Senong said.


  1. Baxter’s focus of the main team means Bafana have already given up on CHAN.. Pathetic Sport? You against more than one billion soccer fans, who cares about your opinion?

  2. Nobody care about this game , it seems ZAMBIA has already won its chance for zambians to invite a GIRLF FRIEND to watch the game with i can assure u we shall beat them so it will be chance to you to go celebrate with a loved ONE NAKU YENDA KUMUCHINDA
