Mashaba happy with 1-1 draw
Bafana Bafana head coach, Shakes Mashaba, has said that he is proud of his team for drawing 1-1 against Cameroon in their friendly international match on Saturday, but admitted that more work needs to be done before next month’s African Cup of Nations (AFCON).
The South African team were 1-0 down in the first six minutes of the match, after Cameroon’s forward, Vincent Aboubakar, found the back of the net during a free kick.
Bafana midfielder, Sibusiso Vilakazi, scored the equalising goal in the second half of the game, with Mashaba saying that his team needs to wake up when it comes to the first half of a match.
"The boys did very well," he said.
"But we need to work on the first 20 minutes of the game. We knew we would come back and come back we did in the second half. The Cameroonians gave us what to expect in Equatorial Guinea. Cameroonians are strong, big and physical and this is what you expect from West Africans.”
Mashaba added that he was unhappy with the lack of physical presence on the field.
"We have to compete, especially physically,” he said after the game.
"You saw in the game today, some of the boys were chickening out in challenges."
