Danga talks tough ahead of Bafana clash



Things didn’t go well for the South African team is terms of arriving in Cameroon for their clash with CAR. Flights were repeatedly cancelled forcing the team to miss two vital days of training. Despite this Coach Igesund is quite confident that his team will be ready to unleash what he calls a “full out carpet attack”.

The CAF despite the problems at home had no such problems and have been in Cameroon since Sunday and they are brimming with confidence.

Despite the fact that South Africa was the better team in Cape Town when they first met the Wild Beasts now think they are equal to the task and are set on tripping the Southerners especially since they are playing in front of a crowd which they hope will be behind them.

Stars such as as playmaker Foxi Kethevoane and forwards Romaric Lignanzi and David Manga are quite confident that they can surpass their performance from game one in which they all tested Goal Keeper Itumeleng Khune.

Danga spoke to supersport.com exclusively from their training ground at the CAF Academy saying ‘ we know them well and are hoping to put pressure on them in the second half. We will test their stamina and go at the new people in their defense and hopefully we will win at the end of the day”.

Weather conditions currently in Yaounde are excellent and so is the pitch at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Stadium which supersport.com visited just minutes ago.
