Can the Zebras stir back to life?

The Zebras fly direct today to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia for a make or break encounter against the Walia Antelopes in the Brazil 2014 World Cup qualifier scheduled for this Sunday.

A win is a must for Stanley Tshosane's side if they still fancy their chances of qualifying for the World Cup, which will be for the very first time.On the other hand, if they lose, they might as well forget about Brazil. Zebras are currently lying at the bottom of their group, with a single point from two matches, while Ethiopia top the group with four points from two matches as well.

The group is still open though, considering that Central Africa Republic (CAR) and South Africa are second and third respectively with three and two points. However, reaching halfway of the group matches without a win would be a concern for any ambitious coach. Unlike in the past when Tshosane had complained of inadequate preparations, this time he acknowledged that preparations for the match went according to plan. "So far I am satisfied with the preparations we had. Everything went well and we would be ready for Ethiopia," Tshosane said after playing Malawi on Tuesday night.
