“We’ve got a chance. We (Bafana) have nothing to lose. The pressure is on them. How we did it in the past was simple: Don’t play like them because they are better than us. We played our way, we used speed. We played at 100km per hour. Even when the ball was out, we put it in back into play quickly. It worked for us because we won 3-0 in their own yard,” De Sa reminisced.
He added: “If you want to play like them, they will beat you. They are well structured and love building from the back.
“They are physical and we couldn’t compete with them physically. We capitalised on speed. Stuart (Baxter) must emphasise on speed.
“We have to go for it and not sit back. We have to play to our strengths. No one is giving us a chance, so they must go all out and the rest will take care of itself.”
