South Africa head coach – Hugo Henri Broos has lauded the progress of the new look Bafana Bafana under his tutelage.
Bafana Bafana [10 points] are currently on top of the Group G table in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers [AFCON] ahead of Ghana [9 points], Ethiopia [3 points], and Zimbabwe who are occupying the last spot with one point.
The 69-year-old Belgian replaced coach Molefi Ntseki who failed to guide South Africa to the 2021 African Cup of Nations in Cameroon.
Since taking over, however, coach Broos has manage to build a refreshingly youthful team that plays with lot of confidence.
South Africa have gone four games unbeaten in the ongoing 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, winning three games Ethiopia [2x] and Ghana while drawing one against Zimbabwe.
“We started here one month ago during the first camp and when you see the steps that we’ve made it’s down to the excellent work by the players,” Broos said at post match conference.
“I can only ask certain things of my players and hand out instructions but in the end, it’s the players who go out and perform.
“At first in the game against Zimbabwe we were hesitant and you saw a team that was lacking confidence.
“Then you saw three days later against Ghana a team with improved confidence playing good football and now a few days ago you saw a team that fights.
“So, we’ve made big steps in a short period of time.”
