Bafana ready for 'hell of a game', concerned midfilder speakes

Bafana Bafana midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane says he is expecting fireworks against Ethiopia
 Bafana Bafana midfielder Reneilwe Letsholonyane says Sunday's 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia will be a ‘hell of a game', but insists the team are ready to do the job.

Gordon Igesund's team produced a polished performance as they beat Central African Republic 3-0 in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Yaounde, Cameroon on Saturday.
However, ‘Yeye' says the big test comes in Addis Ababa this weekend.
“We have to beat Ethiopia; there are no two ways about it. I had a feeling they were going to win in Botswana because they are a stronger side, but then that is good because it means we have to do the business ourselves and not depend on the next team to help us qualify.
“It is as simple as that. We have to beat Ethiopia and top the group before we play our last qualifier against Botswana at home.
“But this one is going to be more difficult because it is an away game in the true sense of the word and with all their supporters behind them; it is going to be one hell of a game.”
Letsholonyane adds: “We have to work extra hard to get the points as this is mostly likely to be the group decider.
“Whoever loses will have to play catch up and with only one match remaining it is going to be very hard if not impossible. If we lose this match, we have to depend on CAR to stop Ethiopia when we play Botswana, and that is not an ideal situation we want to find ourselves in.”
Bafana will leave Yaoundé on Thursday for the match in Addis Ababa.
