Goal.com spoke exclusively with former Bafana Bafana maestro John “Shoes” Moshoeu about South Africa's progress in the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations
Former Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana midfielder John Shoes Moshoeu told Goal.com South Africa that the players should not let the win against Angola get over their heads.
Shoes, as he is affectionately known, said that Bafana need to up their game now that they have the support of the fans, because they still have to get at least a point against Morocco on Sunday to ensure progress.
“People were saying different things after the first game, and (again) there are different stories now that Bafana beat Angola,” said Moshoeu.
“But it’s all up to the boys now. They need to step up to the plate because we haven’t qualified until we get the result against Morocco in the next game,” said Shoes.
Moshoeu believes that there shouldn’t be any pressure on the players to win all the matches, now that they have recorded their first win of the 2013 Afcon, needing just a draw to progress.
“The world expects the hosts to at least make it to the knockout stages,” said Moshoeu.
Bafana will meet Morocco in their final group A match on Sunday, and are hoping to make it to the quarterfinals of the Afcon for the first time since 2002.
