South Africa coach, Broos makes claim ahead Nigeria clash

 


South Africa head coach, Hugo Broos has claimed he is certain that his team won’t be under pressure heading into their semi-final clash with Nigeria in the ongoing 2023 Africa Cup of Nations, AFCON, on Wednesday.

The Bafana Bafana had to labour hard to qualify for the semi-final for the first time in 24 years on Saturday after beating Cape Verde through penalties in the quarter-final encounter.

Goalkeeper Ronwen Williams made four saves during the shootout.

Speaking during the post-match press conference after South Africa defeated Cape Verde, Broos said, according to France24: “It is maybe bizarre for me to say that but for us our AFCON has already been a success.

“We are in the semi-finals. Nobody thought we would do that when we left South Africa to come here.

“There will be less pressure on us [when will face Nigeria], I am certain of that. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to play the final, certainly not.”
