Bafana Coach, Mashaba Vows to Break Super Eagles’ JinxAfrican News, Featured, Latest News, News, Sports Monday, September 8th, 2014
South Africa coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba has told his Nigerian counterpart, Stephen Keshi to prepare for war when the Bafana-Bafana confront the Super Eagles in Cape Town on Wednesday.
Mashaba, who admitted that the Super Eagles have had upper hands in encounter involving the two teams in the past warned that Wednesday’s second round of 2015 Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers will be a different ball game, adding that the jinx has to be broken.
“When two Elephants meet, it is grass that suffers. Watch out, brace yourself for war that day [when Mashaba meets Keshi], because, like I have indicated earlier on, they [Nigeria], have given us sleepless nights.”
“This is one time they must brace themselves for war up to the fullest, it won’t be an easy walk in the park for both teams, but what we are looking for is to come out victorious and that win will change a lot of things in our football, both in administration, media wise, any structure that you talk about,” Mashaba added.
Nigeria, who received a rude shock from lowly rated Congo Brazzaville last Saturday after losing 2-3 in front of their home fans in Calabar, can not afford to lose against the Bafana-Bafana, hence, the African champions risk elimination from next year’s finals.
