‘Mbazo’ says coach Stuart Baxter’s men should be in the right frame of mind as they look to secure a ticket to the continental showpiece.
“Focus and strong mentality will be the key for Bafana on Sunday. They need to be on a positive mode,” Mokoena told IOL.
“The way you train is the way you will play. We need to be in the right frame of mind. We tend to relax against such countries. We failed to beat Libya at home and Seychelles away from home,” he said.
“We should have collected maximum points in those games. We have to produce the same performance and application that we showed when we beat Nigeria in the first game of these qualifiers,” Mokoena said.
“We don’t have to panic. We must play to win. We don’t have to go there for a draw although it will be enough. Both teams are 'away' because the game will be played at a neutral venue,” he continued.
“It is going to be difficult away but we can do it if our mindset is right on the day,” concluded Mokoena.
