Fans wish Bafana Bafana luck ahead of Friday's clash with Senegal

There is a lot of gees in the South African air as Bafana Bafana prepare to take on Senegal in an all important 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier.

Bafana Bafana have two games to play and must win to play in Russia next year.

EWN sports anchor, Morena Mothupi tells 702 host Azania Mosaka that the national squad needs all the supports they can get for their first game against Senegal on Friday at Peter Mokaba Stadium.

If the boys do make it to Russia, it'll be the first world cup we've actually properly qualified for.

If they win tomorrow, they take that momentum into Dakar next week Tuesday and anything can happen.

The input of the newly appointed sports psychologist has been hailed quite a lot lately says Mothupi.

I'm always on the Bafana train. It's a pity i won't make it to Polokwane, if i could, i'd go.

Lerato, caller

I think the coach has selected a good squad.

Mandisi, caller

I don't care about Bafana Bafana. Khune is injured but they've included him in the squad. Do we not have other goal keepers? These guys can't even score in their clubs. The highest goal scorer last season had eleven goals

Sindile, caller
