Bafana striker Katlego Mashego says he wants to continue with his fine form in front goal in the next three games
Bafana Bafana striker Katlego Mashego took the burden off his shoulders on Friday afternoon when he told members of the media that there is no pressure for him to perform in the national team.
Mashego returned to the national team after finishing top of the PSL goalscoring charts with 13 goals from 22 starts, and he admitted that he wants to continue scoring goals.
“There is no pressure for me to perform, but I always want to score regardless of who I am playing for. Whether it is the national team or my club (Moroka Swallows),” said Mashego during the press conference at the Germiston Stadium on Friday.

“It boosts you when you join the national team as a top goalscorer, but I must say that there are other players who are very confident in the team right now too,” he said.
Mashego is optimistic that Bafana will get the results that they are hoping for in their next three games especially the last two games against CAR and Ethiopia.
Bafana need to at least get four points from a possible six, if they are to see themselves in the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

“We just hope that it is going to be a good three games for us and we hope to return with positive results, especially from CAR and Ethiopia,” concluded Mashego.
Mashego is expected to partner Bernard Parker upfront in Sunday’s game against Lesotho, after it was confirmed that Tokelo Rantie will miss the match due to club commitments.
