Percy Tau confident Bafana can beat Zimbabwe in crucial World Cup qualifier

Johannesburg Bafana bad habit skipper Percy Tau has supported the group to crush out for the genuinely necessary three focuses when they have neighbors Zimbabwe in the penultimate round of the World Cup qualifiers at home, FNB Stadium, on Thursday evening. 

In front of the two last matches in the gathering phase of the qualifiers, Bafana have their destiny in their own hands. They are top of Group G with 10 focuses, four away from guaranteeing that they finish top of the gathering and fit the bill for the following round. 

However, that is more difficult than one might expect. They'll meet a natural Zimbabwean side that should just go for it, while Ghana actually have a shot at fitting the bill for the following round as they are second – one point behind Bafana who'll visit them at home on Sunday. 


Tau and Co. however, are not able to take a risk with anything. Realizing that the chances favor Ghana against Ethiopia, they are hellbent on doing their spot against the Warriors at home, around evening time, as they'll definitely require a point away at the Cape Coast. 

"We are anticipating the game against Zimbabwe tomorrow (today). We realize that it won't be simple. Be that as it may, the gathering has done well in the four games. Also, we currently need to improve and better. I'm positive about the gathering," Tau said. 

Without a doubt, Bafana have rebuilt, investigating new players under the rule of mentor Hugo Broos. Yet, there are senior players –, for example, Tau and chief Ronwen Williams – who've persevered through the aggravation of failing to keep a grip on their destiny directly at death. 

In their last round of the 2020 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers, Bafana neglected to beat Sudan away from home and eventually missed out on a spot in finals. This is the place where mentor Molefi Ntseki was terminated before Broos was appointed to reconstruct the group. 

"I figure we can't return to the past. We can just go ahead in the circumstance that we wind up in the present moment. The circumstances are unique. We were in a competition to fit the bill for Afcon yet this one is for the World Cup," the Al Ahly star said. 

It is seniors, like Tau, who'll be answerable for guaranteeing that they don't rehash the slip-ups of the past, including gagging during time to get down to business. All things considered, for a third time frame in succession, their qualifiers for a significant competition could go last possible minute. 

In 2019, they needed to beat Libya in the last game, at an impartial Tunisia, to meet all requirements for Afcon in Egypt, before their misfortune to Sudan guaranteed that they didn't book their spot to Cameroon one year from now. Yet, Tau is certain that they'll take care of business. 

"Global football is diverse contrasted with playing for a major club any place you are. I've been with the (public) group for quite a while and I've been in the circumstance by which we need to qualify and we triumph ultimately our last game away," Tau reviewed.
