“There was disappointment on Wednesday because we played a very good game against Nigeria where we showed that we are a good team.” – Bafana coach Hugo Broos told Sowetan.
“But this is a coach who is proud to be coaching this team. We did a good Afcon and again when you play this good in a semifinal, the disappointment is big. The Bafana game tomorrow is special and it depends on which team is motivated.
“If you ask my advice, this game does not need to be played because the most important thing in a tournament like this is who finishes No 1.
“If you are No 2 or 4, for me it is exactly the same because this is only for statistics. What is important is who is going to finish No 1 because that is what will always be remembered.”
