SA-CAR 2014 World Cup qualifier to hold in Cape Town - Next month's World Cup qualifier between South Africa and the Central African Republic (CAR) will be held in Cape Town, the South Africa Football Association (SAFA) confirmed Thursday.
The clash will be South Africa’s third match in the campaign, following two draws against Ethiopia and Botswana last year.
“After our great showing in the AFCON 2013, we are confident Bafana Bafana will do well in the campaign to qualify for Brazil 2014. This by no way means we are disrespecting our opponents.
'We did not start our campaign well, but at the same time it must be noted that we haven’t lost a match, which is a positive sign,” said SAFA President Kirsten Nematandani. “We need to continue from where we left off in the AFCON tournament and carry the momentum into the qualifiers.”
Ethiopia currently leads the group with four points, followed by CAR on three points. South Africa and Botswana have two and one point respectively.
