"We will try to have the game under control. If we don't have the game under control, we will suffer for 90 minutes. Once we have control of the game, then we can do what we would like to do..."

South Africa currently top the Group G standings ahead of Ghana, Ethiopia, and Zimbabwe, having taken four points from their opening two qualifiers against the Warriors and the Black Stars.
