South Africa will look for their first ever victory over Senegal when the two teams meet in an international friendly on Wednesday.

The match at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban will see South Africa begin preparations for hosting the 2013 Nations Cup, as well as gearing up for their 2014 World Cup qualifying campaign.

The teams have met four times in the past, with Senegal winning twice and the other two matches ending in draws.

South Africa coach Pitso Mosimane expects a challenging encounter against a Senegal team still hurting from their unexpected group-stage exit from this year’s Africa Cup of Nations.

“This match presents us with an opportunity to prepare well for the 2013 Afcon, which we are going to host,” Mosimane said.

“It’s important to play the likes of Egypt, Ghana, Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Zambia and Senegal.”

“The challenge with playing these strong sides is that a win is not easily achieved, but we gain lots of experience in preparation for Afcon 2013, unlike winning easily against a small team and learning little.”

“It’s going to be a difficult match for us more so because we haven’t won for a while though, we have drawn against some top sides on the continent. We want to win but it won’t be easy against the wounded Teranga Lions (Senegal).”
