'It will be special to qualify for the World Cup' – South Africa defender Rushine de Reuck

South Africa defender, Rushine de Reuck, says it will be special for the Bafana Bafana to secure qualification to the 2022 World Cup to be hosted by Qatar next year.

Both South Africa and Ghana recorded a double victory in the qualifiers to keep their qualification hopes alive.

The Bafana Bafana sit top of Group G with 10 points with the Black Stars accumulating 9 points after 4 matches.

A victory for Bafana at home to Zimbabwe, who have had a disappointing campaign, and a win for Ghana in Ethiopia will keep the status quo heading into the final group match in the West African country next month.

According to de Reuck, it will be a dream to play at the World Cup and believes that qualifying to the biggest soccer Mundial would be special.

"It can only be a dream to play at the World Cup and we're halfway there. We've come together well as a team and we approach the game with a good mindset," De Reuck said.

"If we do that, it's possible that we may come back with a good result in Tuesday's game because we're playing at home and we need to win at home and make sure we don't lose away.

"We haven't been to a World Cup for quite some time and it will be very special if we get there."

"We are taking things one game at a time and we're all working hard for each other collectively," De Reuck said.

"When that is done, it's very possible to get the end result, but we can't rest on our laurels, so we hope to get a positive result in front of fans."
