Bafana beat Burkina Faso 3-1 last weekend to get themselves back in the race for a spot in the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

“It was great win for us, and going forward this will give us the confidence we need going to Senegal because both are must win games for us, the win made it easier for us and it made us feel more relaxed,” Dolly told reporters after the game.

“The first day we came into camp we talked and sorted out our differences and we fixed all the tensions. The coach made is clear that we shouldn’t focus on what people say or let the negativity get to us. We all made commitments to the team and you could see how we played.”

Bafana will now face Senegal in back-to-back qualifiers in November and if they win both games, they’ll qualify for the World Cup.
