Ndulula aims to help Bafana past Congo

AmaZulu striker Bongani Ndulula is hoping to continue scoring goals for the South African national team when they face Congo in a 2015 CAF Africa Cup of Nations qualifier on Wednesday night.

Drogba scored his second goal in three matches for Bafana Bafana during Saturday’s 2-0 win over Congo, having opened his account for the senior national team on debut during the 3-0 win over Sudan in September.

“I’m happy I managed to score a crucial goal for the team and it’s any player’s dream to score for the national team,” he said.
“My focus though is on helping the team, it is not about me as an individual – it’s all about us as a team.”

Bafana Bafana are currently at the top of Group A with seven points from three matches, one point ahead of Congo and four points ahead of Sudan and Ndulula says they are determined to collect maximum points at the Peter Mokaba Stadium.

“This is a must win for us as we’d like to ensure we qualify for next year’s tournament and they (Congo) are under pressure we know, so it’s not going to be an easy one,” he said.

“We have not qualified yet and the coach (Shakes Mashaba) has made it clear that it’s a new ball game, so we need to be disciplined.”
Usuthu defender Sadat Ouro-Akoriko will also be in action for Togo on Wednesday night when they host Uganda at the Stade de Kégué in Lomé.
The Sparrows Hawks are currently at the bottom of Group E with three points and will be looking for another positive result after beating Uganda 1-0 in Kampala on Saturday.

Ghana lead the group with five points, followed by Uganda and Guinea with four points each.
