South Africa Boss Broos Targets Third Position

South Africa Boss Broos Targets Third Position

South African head coach, Hugo Broos says the fight for third position in the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations will be more of a mental battle than anything.

The Bafana Bafana will face Democratic Republic of Congo in the third-place match at the Felix Houphouet Boigny Stadium, Abidjan on Saturday(Today).
Broos’ side suffered a agonising 4-2 penalty shootout defeat to Nigeria in the semi-final on Wednesday.
The Belgian tactician who guided South Africa to their first semi-final since 2000, said the key to clinching a third place will be in how they mentally recover from the heart-breaking loss to Nigeria.

“We played a very good game against Nigeria. It was a great performance and we showed that we are a great team again,” he told CAFonline.
“When you exit after 120 minutes, it’s always a huge disappointment. When you play so good, the disappointment is so big. The game tomorrow is special.
“It depends a bit on which team will be mentally recovered because also for DRC, it was difficult to lose like that”.
