South Africa took another step forward in their charge to qualify for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday after earning a priceless 1-0 win over Ethiopia at the FNB Stadium, which saw Broos' side reclaim the top spot in the Group G standings.
However, despite coming away with the win on the night, Bafana Bafana were dominated in midfield by their East African opponents who boasted 63% and at least 13 more shooting opportunities.
As a result, question marks were raised of the Belgian tactician's decision to field reigning DStv Premiership Defender of the Season, Ngcobo, in the centre of the park as opposed a more naturally suited option.
He is not a MD He's a Defender by Nature Mr Broos must stop his experiment it's not working. Here in RSA when a Defender is very comfortable on the ball we think He must play in Midlefielder we want those defenders who kicks every ball.Then I realised fact that the bunch of players Hugo Broos has Assembled will DIE on the field for this country.
Yesterday I saw De Reucks blocking a shot with his head whilst on the floor. I saw Mashego blocking a shot with his head in close range that hit him so hard he fell down. I saw letsoala defending, committing in challenges and even committing fauls. I saw Williams proving his critics (including me) wrong and and leaving his heart on the field for Bafana.
If getting caught on position ,loosing position cheaply,loose passes and always playing back passes is deserving praises then well done mfana ka Ngcobo.Guys i see our defenders like playing the ball back to the keeper (Williams) and knowing him it will end in tears.
