South African Football president Danny Jordaan has told Basetsana players that by beating Zambia in their home shows how good the squad is ahead of their second meeting with the Zambians at the Orlando Stadium on Saturday.

“Zambia is one of the nations which plays really well in the Southern region and you were able to beat them in their own backyard without conceding,” Jordaan told Safa.net.

“That was just a highlight of how really good you are and you now need to finish the job by making sure that you do well also in this return leg.”

Should Basetsana win the tie, they will face the winner between Namibia and Botswana during the weekend of 20 and 22 March.
