Bafana Bafana secured a convincing 4-0 win over Namibia to blow Group E wide open in their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations encounter at the Amadou Gon Coulibaly Stadium on Sunday evening.
But what head coach Hugo Broos hinted at in the pre-match press conference was indeed the story; ‘look to be more direct and avoid playing in areas where mistakes can be costly’.
Bafana were ruthless starting from the 14th minute when Percy Tau converted a spot-kick, five days since he missed the chance to open the scoring against Mali before their eventual second-half capitulation.
But the goal was the start of the Themba Zwane show in midfield as he orchestrated an unassailable lead with a brace before the break, two clinical finishes after some direct attacking football.
Second-half substitute Thapelo Maseko made it 4-0 with 15 minutes to go to wrap up a memorable win for Broos’ boys that moves them into second place ahead of the Brave Warriors, ahead of their final group E game against Tunisia.
According to a media platform,Hugo Broos said that he was very proud of the performance of his players which was very outstanding and he hopes that his squad can continue to win games like this.
Hugo Broos also stated that the experience of Themba Zwane helped them a lot as a team since he was one of the key players in the Bafana Bafana attacking force.
Some Bafana Bafana supporters also had to add words after a 4-0 win against Nambia and some had to say that Evidence Makgopa was also one of the reasons we won the game Yesterday because he was one of the ball controllers contributing in the Bafana Bafana Striking force.
