Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba has hailed Swaziland ahead of their clash in the Cosafa Cup at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Wednesday.

Bafana Bafana will take on Swaziland following their 4-2 penalty shoot out against Lesotho, while Swaziland beat Zambia in their quarter-finals match respectively.

The 65-year-old coach insists that he knows that Swaziland have good players, who can go forward and attack.

‘I know Swaziland,’ Mashaba told SoccerLaduma.

‘They have good players who can play attacking football.’

Mashaba went on to say that he analysed their games and located the areas in which Bafana Bafana have to deal with the Swaziland threat.

‘We watched them against Zambia and we have identified their strong areas, and that’s their midfield and strikers. If we can contain them in those areas then we can win this game and reach the final, and that’s what we want,’ he added.

Bafana Bafana will take on Swaziland in the Cosafa Cup semi-finals at the Sam Nujoma Stadium on Wednesday.

Kick-off has been set for 18:00.
