Bafana set to win World Cup qualifier group stage

After a sterling performance on Thursday (November 11) against Zimbabwe at the FNB Stadium, Bafana Bafana have one more encounter against the Black Stars of Ghana.

Bafana won by 1-0 after Teboho Mokoena found the back of net in the 26th minute giving South Africa the much needed three points as they advance in Group G and top the table on 13 points.

The win according to Coach Hugo Broos, was scrappy and he feels his team did not perform at their peak.

“I believe in this team and I know what they can do. Against Zimbabwe they did not perform as we had planned, it was scrappy and they know it. They’ll have to do better against Ghana. We need to win well away,” said Coach Hugo Broos.

Friday morning the team were up early and headed to OR Tambo International Airport with a few guests joining the team in Cape Coast.

CEO Tebogo Mothlanthe who has braved the trip with the team said, “We believe in the team, we believe that they can lead South Africa to greatness. We believe that we will be making our way to a World Cup next year. We believe it is all possible and we hope that South Africa stand with us today in this crucial encounter against the Black Stars.”

If Bafana win or draw against Ghana on Sunday, they will advance to the next round of qualifying.
