Bafana can win - Hlatshwayo
Bafana Bafana defender, Thulani Hlatshwayo, has said that he is excited to be playing in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament and believes that the South African team can bring home the trophy.
"I would like to win something with Bafana Bafana - the AFCON tournament in particular. Zambia were the surprise package and won it and that's inspired us to believe we can also do well," Hlatshwayo said.
"We won this tournament in 1996 and we now want to be new talk of the town by winning again."
Bafana are placed in Group C against Algeria, Senegal and Ghana with the defender stating that the side are not intimidated by the competition.
"The good thing about this group of players is that we have respect for all the teams in the tournament but are not scared of them,” he said.
"We did well against Zambia, against Cameroon and we hope the same continues when we face Mali.These are big guns on the continent. They have big name players while we have lesser-known players but we are not intimidated. We are prepared to fight to the end."
Bafana will be facing Mali on Wednesday in Bitam, Gabon, in preparation for the 2015 AFCON tournament, which begins at the end of this month.
