The Amajita striker revealed that Mozambique enjoyed a lot of support from their home fans in their 1-1 draw in the first leg a week ago.

“The crowd in Beira City was overwhelming and encouraged their players a lot – we are just asking the South African faithful to come out in numbers to help us and motivate us as we are aware that the crowd can play a huge role. So we are asking the people of North West to come support and help us over the line in this important mission,” he told Safa.net.

Foster added that fans should expect a good performance from Amajita and they will fight hard for the country.

“South Africans can expect a good result from Amajita, we will give our best for the country seeing that we have an away goal – which is a positive. But we shouldn’t dwell much on the previous result. This is an entirely new game and Mozambique will want to come out stronger and eager to also get an away goal too.”
