The South Africans suffered an unfortunate 3-1 loss to Spain in their opening match and will be looking at doing better in their second group match on Thursday, June 13.

"The China match is a do-or-die match for us," Van Wyk said. "We have a very big task ahead of us especially with them losing in their first match against Germany they will be coming out harder than they did to get a win.

"We need to try to hold them and hopefully have a set game-plan that can benefit us more than it did in our first game.
