Head coach of South Africa, Molefi Ntseki has revealed his game plan ahead of Thursday’s AFCON qualifier against Ghana at the Cape Coast Stadium.
He told the media his team will try to get an early goal in a bid to unsettle the Black Stars in their own backyard.
“We have to be very careful. Starting on the front foot can get us an early goal and unsettle Ghana. But at the same time, if you give Ghana too much possession, they can easily hurt you,”
“They are at home‚ they will have the support and confidence. So, it’s a game where one has to be very cautious.”
The former SA u17 coach maintained that his team will be wary of the attacking threat of the Ghanaians and will employ a cautious approach.
“So, we are very careful in our approach. Our tactical strategy has to be one of being protective‚ but at the same time we should not be dropping too deep and giving Ghana possession‚ because they can always be dangerous.”
Bafana Bafana will play the Black Stars in matchday one of Group C.
