Former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Brian Baloyi says the national team is not bold enough to attack teams at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt.

Bafana have been dismal in the group matches after they lost 1-0 to Ivory Coast and Morocco and also beat Namibia by the same score line.

They managed to scrape through as one of the four best placed number three teams in their groups.

Bafana will meet Egypt in the daunting second round clash in Cairo on Saturday.

The host nation has been in impressive form winning all their three group matches against Zimbabwe, Uganda and Democratic Republic of Congo.

Egypt is one of the favourites to win the biennial tournament. Baloyi says Bafana have not been playing as a team.

Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has controversially rotated his two goalkeepers Ronwen Williams and Darren Keet in the group stage.

Williams was in goals in the two defeats against Ivory Coast and Morocco, while Keet was between the sticks in a win over Namibia.

It remains to be seen who will be up against the Egyptians, but Baloyi says both of them have done well.
