“Nothing else matters but victory on Saturday,” these are the strong words from Bucs midfielder Vincent Pule, who is currently in camp with Bafana Bafana.
The national team players have been hard at work the past few days as they prepare for their 2019 African Cup of Nations Qualifier against Nigeria over the weekend.
Speaking to Orlandopiratesfc.com, Pule revealed that the mood in the camp was high and everybody was raring to go.
“We look forward to the tough match against Nigeria. Unlike the Seychelles, who were a closed book Nigeria are the complete opposite of this. We know what to expect; this is a team that possesses a lot of quality.
"We have been working hard at training. I would say that the mood is fine and we are fully focused on the task that lies ahead.”
