Bafana Bafana striker Percy Tau says he is not feeling any pressure ahead of Libya's vital clash with Libya.

The two teams will clash in the 2019 Caf African Cup of Nations qualifier on Sunday in Tunisia.

“I never put pressure on myself. I never think there’s pressure because there are 11 guys on the pitch and everyone has a role to play,” Tau said in Tunisia.

With the former Mamelodi Sundowns attacker likely to spearhead Bafana’s attack with Lebohang Mothiba and Themba Zwane, stressed the importance of teamwork.

“I’m always on the luck side that I have to finish the goals, but everyone has a role to play. There’s no pressure when there’s a team effort,” continued the striker.

Bafana need to avoid a defeat in order to qualify for the finals which will be hosted by Egypt between June and July.

“Everyone is looking forward to the match and we are trying to get a good mood before the match so that we get the points that we need. Everyone is excited to be here,” Tau concluded.

Bafana are placed second in Group E - two points above third-placed Libya, who need a victory to qualify for the finals.

The two teams played to a 0-0 draw in a match which was played at the Moses Mabhida Stadium last year.
