Bafana Bafana mentor Shakes Mashaba says spirits are high in the camp as they prepare for the second game of their Central American tour against Honduras. After 1-0 victory over Costa Rica, a goal scored by Andile Jali, Mashaba insists that Bafana Bafana are looking to build momentum ahead of their two-legged World Cup qualifying match with Angola.
“I have always maintained that winning is a good culture to develop,” said Mashaba.
“The tour of Central America has really cemented the unity among players and most of them will form a solid foundation for a team that will play against Angola.
