Bafana Bafana vs Denmark – Preview

Bafana Bafana vs Denmark today. The two sides meet in Atteridgeville today in what will be the last chance for the coaches of both sides – Carlos Alberto Parreira and Morten Olsen – to experiment ahead of next week’s kick-off.

After yesterday’s injuries to both Rio Ferdinand and Didier Drogba both Bafana Bafana and Denmark will have to walk the fine line between playing a hard game and not getting themselves injured.

Kickoff 11 June at Soccer City

South Africa open the 2010 World Cup against Mexico on June 11 at Soccer City in Johannesburg and will meet Uruguay and France in Group A, while Denmark is pooled in Group E alongside Holland, Cameroon and Japan.

Siyabonga Nomvete –  Need a Positive Result

Although Parreira says the performance is more important than the result against a Danish side 47 places above Bafana on the FIFA rankings, veteran striker Siyabonga Nomvete pinpoints the need for a victory. “This is our last warm-up and we cannot afford to finish with a negative result.”

Katlego Killer Mphela – It Will be a Tough One

According to fellow striker Katlego Mphela : “This is the last opportunity for Bafana to capture the hearts of all South Africans so we must go for the kill on Saturday.”

Bafana Bafana striker “Killer” Mphela says that he is expecting the final World Cup warm-up opponents Denmark to pose a stern test to the host nation’s abilities just a week before the start of the finals.

“We are well aware that this is the last opportunity for us to win the hearts of all South Africans and we will go for the kill on Saturday,” the Mamelodi Sundowns striker said.

“The team is gelling and the most important thing for us ahead of the Word Cup is that we are able to keep possession and score.

“We expect a tough one against Denmark, who will also want to win to build more (momentum) in their camp.”

Denmark Lost First Warm-up 1-0 to Australia

What will make the South Africans feel a bit happier about this Bafana Bafana vs Denmark encounter is that Denmark lost their first warm-up in South Africa 1-0 to Australia last Tuesday in a match where both teams struggled with the altitude.

Coach Morten Olsen expects a big improvement from his attack today in Tshwane: “To come away with a positive result we must do much better in front of goal. We had a lot of possession against Australia, but that does not matter in football.”

Injured Danes

However, Olsen will have to make do without a few injured players, including Wolfsburg midfielder Thomas Kahlenberg, Feyenoord striker Jon Dahl Tomasson, goalkeeper Thomas Sorensen, defender Simon Kjaer and striker Nicklas Bendtner.

Park and Ride for Bafana Bafana vs Denmark Ticketholders

Bafana Bafana’s final preparation match against Denmark ahead of the World Cup has been sold out with fans attending the match on Saturday being offered free park and ride and park and walk services to the Lucas ‘Masterpieces’ Moripe stadium.  28,000 tickets were snapped up shortly after going on sale
