South Africa will be nervous when they perform with their needs to win World Cup match against Italy on Friday, coach Rassie Erasmus has stated.
The Springboks are third in Pool B behind Italy and New Zealand hitting the knockout stage.
South Africa have won 13 of 14 matches against The Azzurri but didnt lose to them as recently as 2016.
Weve been imagining for 20 or 21 Test matches and its do or die now, Erasmus said.
The players feel it. I cant sit here and tell you that we dont have a few butterflies, since weve dropped in the previous 3 decades to Italy.
They [Italy] will be really up with this particular game since they wont believe they could beat the All Blacks, but they will believe they could defeat the Springboks.
South Africa, who were one of those pre-tournament favorites, have made three modifications to their bunch in their defeat by New Zealand in their opening game.
Hooker Bongi Mbonambi, lock in Lood de Jager keep their places after strong performances against Namibia on Saturday and prop Tendai Mtawarira.
Veteran Sergio Parisse has been remembered by italy at number eight, wholl turn into the player in Tests.
His cap will be won by the 36-year-old, overtaking Ireland legend Brian ODriscoll, which just former New Zealand captain Richie McCaw will possess more with 148.
They have highest points so far after wins and perform New Zealand.
Italy coach Conor OShea statedthe pressure is firmly on South Africa on Friday.
They are expected to win the World Cup, he explained.
If you do not front up physically against them, you have already lost the game. You have to take them on in the forward. We have to treat it like the last match well ever play.
