Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba believes his players can still qualify for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon.

Bafana Bafana gave away their lead twice on Saturday afternoon when they faced Cameroon in a Group M match in Limbe. The game finished in a 2-2 draw.

Mashaba’s men have collected two points in first three group games, and they now face Cameroon again in Durban on Tuesday evening.

“They have points in the bag so a draw will suit them on Tuesday, but we will take the game to them. We are under tremendous pressure to win this clash, and I believe we have players capable of getting the business done. For us the upcoming match is a decider, a draw will almost kick us out of the qualifiers or leave us with a huge mountain to climb. There are nine points on offer, and if we win all our remaining matches it could make a huge difference to our course,” said Mashaba.
