Pitso to go on the offensive

2011-11-08 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane insists he will change his approach when his charges take on Côte d’Ivoire and Zimbabwe soon in friendlies.

The clash with the Elephants will be Bafana’s first competitive match since their humiliating failure to qualify for the 2012 African Cup of Nations (Afcon).

Mosimane says that he will adopt a more offensive approach for Saturday’s showdown in Port Elizabeth with Africa’s top-ranked team.

“… We have not been scoring goals and this is what affected us [during the 2012 Afcons qualifiers],” Mosimane said on Kickoff’swebsite.

“Our defence has always looked solid, but it is in the striking department that we have been found wanting …” he said.
