Bafana coach Broos remained optimistic
After a dismal start in Morocco, Bafana coach Broos remained optimistic. Hugo Broos, the coach of Bafana Bafana, is upset that his team did not have anything to show for their valiant performance against Morocco in the first Africa Cup of Nations qualifier last week.
After dominating for the majority of the game until losing two goals in the second half, the South African national team fell 1-2 at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium.
Lyle Foster surprised the home supporters with a well-taken low shot in the 7th minute, boosting the visitors’ chances of upsetting the hosts in their own backyard, but the North Africans battled their way back to finally win the game.
“When I look at the first half, we got off to a terrific start, scoring a goal, but it seemed like there was a concern in the team not to lose what we had.” Morocco had perhaps five or six opportunities.”
On September 19 at home and September 27 away, Bafana start their continental qualification campaign as they face Liberia in back-to-back matches.
As they strive to re-establish their ambitions to qualify for the continental extravaganza, the Bafana coach is optimistic that his troops will get the job done and beat the Lone Stars home and away.
“I am very disappointed that we did not win,” the Bafana Bafana said.
