FIFA World Cup Qualifying Preview: Central African Republic v South Africa

SoccerNews in World Cup 6 Jun 2013


South Africa will look to extend their unbeaten run when they meet Central African Republic on Saturday.

Gordon Igesund’s men have avoided defeat over 90 minutes in their last seven outings, though they exited the Africa Cup of Nations at the hands of Mali on penalties during that time.

Despite that good run, the 2010 World Cup hosts have not had things all their own way as they bid to qualify for the 2014 tournament via CAF qualification round two Group A.
They currently sit in second place, two points adrift of leaders Ethopia, having won one game and drawn the other two.
That solitary victory came against their next opponents, whom they brushed aside 2-0 at the Cape Town Stadium in March of this year.
Central African Republic, meanwhile, have not won since kicking their campaign off with a 2-0 home victory over Botswana in June 2012.
They are currently ranked 59th in the world by FIFA and appear an unlikely bet to cause a huge upset by reaching the first World Cup in their history.
But if they are to keep their chances alive, they will need a win at the Barthelemy Boganda Stadium.
Foxi Kethevoama will need to be on form in order for that to happen, with the forward having scored both of his side’s two qualification goals so far.
Conversely, South Africa’s four goals have all come from different scorers.
