AFCON

Latest news updates on Hugo Broos and his squad

Following Bafana Bafana's 1-0 victory against Zimbabwe on Thursday afternoon (21:00) which was hosted at FNB Stadium and they are going to play against Ghana who played a tight draw against Ethiopia on Thursday's match (15:00) which was hosted at Orlando Stadium.

After taking over a side that had even failed to qualify for the AFCON finals, Hugo Broos has taken Bafana to within one match of qualifying for the 2022 Qatar FIFA World Cup play-off round.

Under Molefi Ntseki, Bafana Bafana was in crisis and low on confidence when Broos took over. He immediately freshened up the squad, relying on youth.

Hugo Broos has won four and drew one of his five games in Group G of the World Cup qualifiers, and must avoid defeat in Cape Coast to secure a place in the Play-Off round.

Broos also stated that, while missing the playoffs would be disappointing, it would not be catastrophic.

"I over heard what Danny Jordaan said about this project, so you should be grateful for where the coach has taken you so far," Zimbabwe coach Norman Mapeza said following the match at FNB Stadium on Thursday.

Zimbabwe's Warriors have had a disastrous season, finishing last in their group with no wins.

The Warriors were open about the task that awaits Broos' team in Cape Coast on Sunday, having played Ghana in back-to-back matches previous to meeting Bafana.

Bafana Bafana flew to Ghana this morning and will fly to Cape Coast on Sunday evening after arriving in Accra.

"It will be difficult to get to Cape Coast. You should be psychologically prepared, and I hope you can locate a training pitch there. In Cape Coast, things are not going to be easy. I hope you find a better place to train because this one is awful "Mapeza agrees.
