Broos Targets Victory Vs Ghana But…

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos says even if his side wouldn’t beat Ghana on Monday, their hopes of qualifying for the 2022 FIFA World Cup wouldn’t be over.

South Africa take on the Black Stars in their second qualifier for the 2022 FIFA World Cup after drawing 0-0 with Zimbabwe on Friday. Ghana, meanwhile, defeated Ethiopia 1-0 to collected their first three points.

Ahead of Monday’s clash, Broos insisted that it will be another tough game, calling Ghana the best team in the group.

“If you want to qualify, you have to win your home games, so we will try,” Broos told reporters on Sunday.

“(But) even if we draw, we are still in the running, because Ghana will move to four points, maybe Zimbabwe will also move to four. We’d still be in the running.

“Every game is different. You can’t live in the past. I want to see tomorrow if the players are ready to perform at this level. Ghana are the best team in the group.

“We wanted to win (against Zimbabwe), but okay we didn’t. Tomorrow we try again. But what will be the result tomorrow I don’t know.

“Maybe against Ethiopia I will need to make some changes. It’s a young team, they need games at this level.”

Broos also confirmed that there are no new injury problems and everyone will be available for the game against the Black Stars.

“Everybody is fit. Today everyone is in training, there will be no absentees tomorrow.”

South Africa next face Ethiopia away from home on 6 October.
