New Zealand coach Ricki Herbert understands the magnitude of Wednesday's Confederations Cup clash with South Africa.
The All Whites are coming off a 5-0 loss to European champions Spain whilst South Africa played out an uninspiring 0-0 draw against Asian champions Iraq in their opening matches so Herbert is expecting a different to come up against a determined outfit.
"It's a big match, but a huge match for South Africa," Herbert said.
"They will be looking to win the game after a surprise result against Iraq. I think they will be under a lot of pressure.
"We could catch South Africa on the backlash a little bit. They might have thought they should have won the first game so they will need the three points tomorrow. It could be interesting."
The likely All Whites line-up for the match in Rustenburg is as follows:
GK: Glen Moss
M: Jeremy Christie, Tim Brown (c), Simon Elliott, Leo Bertos
S:Shane Smeltz, Chris Killen
