We know what will happen if Bafana Bafana does not collect six points in Sao Tome – Ntseki

The 50-year-old tactician has revealed he devised a plan as he looked to stage two wins against the Falcons and True Parrots team.

South Africa head coach Molefi Ntseki said it was imperative for his team to record two wins against Sao Tome and Principe.

Bafana Bafana are set to face both Falcons and True Parrots in the back-to-back 2022 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifiers and both matches will be played in South Africa.

Ntseki’s side will host Sao Tome at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Friday, before meeting at Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium where Bafana will officially be the away side on Monday.

South Africa is in these two matches in second place in its qualifying group (Group C) with three points and the 1996 African champions are keen to add to their points total.

“The six points are very critical and everyone is aware of that,” Ntseki said on Daily sun.

“We are not the only ones under pressure. The media, the president of the country and the president of Safa, we are all looking forward to getting six points.

“We know that if we don’t get the six points [against Sao Tome], we would have disappointed everyone in the country. “

Ntseki is eager to silence his critics after suffering a difficult start to his reign as coach of the Bafana, the team having made five appearances under his leadership – losing two, drawing one and winning two.

Bafana failed to register a victory in their last FIFA international break as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Namibia, before losing 2-1 to Zambia in friendlies at domicile in October 2020.

Ntseki explained that he did his homework on the Falcons and True Parrots team in Group C.

“We have made our plan, we have made our preparations and we will execute our plan in training,” added Ntseki.

“We expect players to respond to it to help them on Friday and Monday win both games.”

Sao Tome have lost both of their Group C matches which were against Ghana and Sudan and they have yet to score a single goal.

Two wins against Team Falcons and True Parrots could see Bafana climb to the top of the group standings if the results between Ghana and Sudan go their way.
