“Most teams, when they come to play South Africa, believe we are very soft, but I thrive on the physical aspect that’s my game," the player told reporters.
"I think the guys will need to enjoy the physical battle and try to run around them.
“We have to show them what we can do. I am definitely going to enjoy the match and the task assigned to me. I believe we have the squad that can overcome such challenges. It is a huge test but very feasible.”
Gould believes that Bafana Bafana will triumph against their opponents on Saturday and has the ability to become one of the teams flying to Brazil next year.
“After Saturday’s game we still have two away matches in June against Ethiopia and CAR and I am confident by the end of the campaign, we will be sitting pretty at the top and with one foot on the plane to Brazil,” he says.
Bafana Bafana currently sit on third spot in their World Cup qualification group, with Ethiopia and CAR lying above them on the group standings.
