Bvuma – It Felt Great To Write History
Bafana Bafana and Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma says he is proud of the national team’s performance, and os confident ahead of today’s World Cup qualifier match.
Hugo Broos’ troops will face Ethiopia at FNB Stadium later today, looking for another win to ensure they remain at the top of the Group G.
Bvuma, who has not featured in any game so far in the FIFA World Cup qualifier games, says winning their away game meant a lot for the team.
“I was not nervous for the game; I knew we were good enough to win. We have played games like this before on the continent with Chiefs,” said Bvuma.
“I always had the hope that we would come back even though they equalised, I knew we would come back, and we did.
“We are feeling good and happy to have won away from home. The points are important for us as a country, and now we are back at home looking to finish the job.”
It was the first time for South Africa to beat Ethiopia, and in head-to-head the two teams now have one win each, while one match ended in a draw, and the Amakhosi shot-stopper says he is pleased to be part of the team that made history.
“I found out about that history after the game, it felt great to be able to beat them away from home, I am proud of the hard work being put in, he added.
“We made history and supporting the team from the bench felt great because we all contributed. We have a new generation of players and being part of this team makes me want to work harder.
“As we are leading the group, we need to win our games, focus on ourselves and get maximum points and hopefully go all the way.”
