Bafana defeated Cape Verde 2-1 on penalties on Saturday night to reach the semi-finals of the Africa Cup of Nations. The Belgian coach has been commended for how the team has been able to grind results in Ivory Coast. “If you want to win the Afcon, you have to play with your best players. In assembling the team, you have to make sure that you have locally based players that are very good in the mix, and Hugo Broos has done that.
He did the same thing when he was in Cameroon, and it worked for him as he went on to win the tournament,” said Eymael, speaking exclusively to the Siya crew. But what he has been saying is that the most important thing is the results. Every game now is like a final before the final. The players now need to focus and put in 100% effort.
“I wish South Africa to go through,” the former Free State Stars coach said. The game had to be decided by penalties, and Bafana emerged victorious. The new online stadium, SNL24.com is Soccer Laduma’s new home. Eymael, who followed the progress of Broos when he coached Cameroon, believes that he knows what he is doing and has the ability to lead South Africa to success.
He emphasized the importance of focusing on the results and putting in maximum effort, as every game is crucial at this stage of the tournament.
