Bafana Bafana-the hope of Southern Africa

The Bafana Bafana of South Africa is the only southern African nation in the 2022 Qatar FIFA world cup qualifiers that is still UNBEATEN.

Against all odds , south African is one leg into the playoffs of the qualifiers following their impressive run under new coach Hugo Broos who has changed the look and performance of the team after struggling in the Afcon qualifiers .

Broos who was appointed as head coach for the Bafana Bafana shortly after the nation’s failure to qualify to next year’s Africa cup of nations , has since started rebuilding the team by putting trust in young players majority of whom from the u23 team that represented the country at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Yesterday South Africa thumped their neighbors and fellow southerners Zimbabwe by a goal to nil to extend their lead in group G with 3 points ahead of second placed Ghana who drew with Ethiopia to earn a point and sit at 10 points.

South Africa drew 0-0 with Zimbabwe in their group opener, thumped Ethiopia home and away and defeated Ghana at home to maintain a 100% UNBEATEN run in Group G.

They will now look to seal their qualification to the next round of the qualifiers this Sunday when they clash second placed Ghana in Kumasi in a match that is predicted by many as a mouth-watering encounter.

South Africa need only a point to proceed to the last 10 playoffs while Ghana will need maximum three points to stand a chance of remaining in the race to Qatar.
