The soccer legend says South Africa can go even further to the semifinals and hopefully get to the final.

Bafana Bafana will launch their Africa Cup of Nations 2019 (Afcon) campaign on Monday against Cote d’ Ivoire in Egypt.

The senior men’s national team have been drawn against Cote d’ Ivoire, Morocco and Namibia in Group D.

Do Bafana Bafana have a chance to pass the group stages and eventually win the Afcon cup?

Buhle Madulini speaks to former Bafana Bafana player Lucas Radebe on the Bafana Bafana's hopes and Afcon as a whole.

Bafana Bafana has a good opportunity like everybody else but it is going to be tough. There are very good teams out there.

Lucas Radebe, Legend and former Bafana Bafana player

We've got to win. I mean at some point we need to be happy. We deserve something.

Lucas Radebe, Legend and former Bafana Bafana player

Radebe says the team have responsible players that are professional enough to handle the kind of football in the Afcon.

I think for the first time in a long time, we've got a team that we believe in and we think this is the team that can go even further to the semifinals and hopefully get to the final.

Lucas Radebe, Legend and former Bafana Bafana player

He says the first game is psychological and the team needs to win the first game.

The first games are very important. You've got to go there with a positive mind and make sure you win so you can gain confidence and momentum.

Lucas Radebe, Legend and former Bafana Bafana player

We raise our game against the big teams. Once we get a good result against Morocco, I think we will be in a good space.

Lucas Radebe, Legend and former Bafana Bafana player

Radebe says Bafana Bafana must not underestimate Namibia because they might lose.

Let's get a good result against Morocco and let's beat Namibia. We can't look at them and say we are playing Namibia it's a definite three points. Things can change in the field.
