Bafana Bafana is pitted in Group F, which comprises Ghana, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe. Tembo is a former Zimbabwe international and he foresees a very tricky group.
Meanwhile, SuperSport captain Dean Furman is rumoured to be leaving the team at the end of the season and return to England.
The Bafana Bafana international played for Oldham Athletics and Doncaster Rovers in England lower leagues before joining Matsatsantsa and enjoyed a trophy-laden spell with the team.
Tembo is not worried about the possibility of him leaving.
SuperSport striker Bradley Grobler has been linked with a move away from the team in recent years.
Orlando Pirates are rumoured to be looking for his signature before the transfer window ends on Friday. Tembo says it is important to retain top players.
Matsatsantsa beat Chippa United 3-0 on Friday night to remain in third place with 34 points in 20 matches behind log leaders Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns. Tembo is hoping to put pressure on the leading pack.
SuperSport have introduced many youngsters in the past few seasons such as Sipho Mbule, Teboho Mokoena, Jamie Webber, Luke Fleurs to mention but a few.
Tembo says he believes in building the team. – Report by Vincent Sitsula
