Bafana Bafana coach Pitso Mosimane is all smiles as he put the players through their paces ahead of the match against Egypt on Saturday.

Steven Pienaar, who arrived in camp on Sunday with a “two-week history of a mild bilateral groin pain, meaning pain on both sides of the groin, left and right”, was involved in full training and later on ‘Schillo’ did some jogging on his own on the sidelines.

Pienaar says he is ready to lead the team out against ‘The Pharaohs’ in the all-important 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

“Of course it will be my first time captaining the team in an official game, but I think it will be the same as the last game (against Kenya).

“I have been around the team a few years now and I will be myself. I think this is our biggest game but there is no pressure. We will go into the game 100% focused and we are aware it is a must that we get all the three points,” he said, at a press conference

“After the World Cup this is our biggest game. So for us it is important that the three points stay in South Africa. For Egypt it is make or break. We must just make sure we don’t lose or draw. As a player you want to win every game and being the captain of the team I don’t want to lose,” added the Tottenham Hotspur midfielder.
