South Africa’s coach Molefe Ntseki has revealed he is not going to let his guard down in spite of the change in Ghana’s squad ahead of the encounter on Thursday.
The Bafana Bafana of South Africa will take on the Black Stars at the FNB stadium in Johannesburg in the 2021 AFCON qualifiers.
Ghana is going into the game without captain Andre Ayew, Jordan Ayew, and deputy captain Thomas Partey.
Notwithstanding their absence, the Bafana Bafana coach is not taking anything away from Ghana and is anticipating a very tough encounter against the Black Stars.
“I would say Ghana for us are more dangerous than they were when we were analyzing them and now bringing in new players for this game. Because it becomes much easier for you to play when you know who you’re playing against‚ when you analyze individual players in their team‚” Ntseki said.
He added “in this case you are more about the coach to say‚ ‘In their past two matches what was their approach?’ And hopefully, it will be the same approach. But Ghana will be coming here with a different team altogether. The first leg that they played against Sudan in Cape Coast they won‚ and then the second game in Sudan they changed the team‚ and they lost.”
Ghana and South Africa are currently level on points in Group C with both on 9 points in of the qualifiers.
