Furman reveals that Bafana is not afraid to attack Nigeria

Bafana midfielder Dean Furman spoke to Goal about his enthusiasm to take on Nigeria for the Nelson Mandela Challenge in Durban
The South Africa midfielder Furman says that playing on home soil brings back great memories. It was during the Afcon tournament where he won the heart of many South Africans. His sheer hard work was clearly appreciated.  

“I am happy to be here. The last time I was here (in Durban) it was during the Afcon and it is always great to be playing on my home soil."

Furman said Bafana's main mission against Nigeria will be to go all out and display good football.

“We want to go and win the game. That is our mission. The plan is to be positive and that is how the guys are feeling and I trust that we will do well,” he said.

Despite the mere fact that Nigeria are the reigning African champions, Furman said they need to forget about the Afcon and focus on getting the result on the day.

“It is difficult to say what will happen and we now need to forget about the Afcon and focus on the games at hand...I know they are the African Champions, but we must give it our best,” said Furman.  

The Doncaster Rovers player said he will be making sure to distribute the ball around the field with great effect.

“Getting the ball running and distributing it to our key players will be crucial for us. We will play as a team and complement each other’s strengths."
