"But with the belief and [good] preparations, I think we are capable of going further to the quarterfinals," he said.
Bafana have good records against their group opponents; Ivory Coast (two wins, four draws), Morocco (two wins, one defeat, three draws) and Namibia (five wins, two draws , two defeats) since SA's re-admission to international football in 1992.
Radebe, however, cautioned Bafana not to dwell on the past and rather go to Egypt and give their all for the nation.
"I remember playing Ivory Coast in Burkina Faso [during the 1998 Afcon] . we had some great results there [reaching the final and losing to Egypt]. But it's a different generation and teams have really improved a lot.
"Morocco and Ivory Coast, we know what we are facing - that's quality.
"So for us it's to go there and believe in ourselves. We know we are capable of making it further.
"So it's to beat those two big giants and then we are through," he said.
