Kill me if we Don't Qualify for AFCON

“I said that people should kill me if we do not go to the Afcon, and now that we have made it, they should kill me if we do not go through the group phases of the tournament,” Broos said.

Hugo Broos, the Coach of Bafana Bafana (South Africa)  already planning for the competition in Ivory Coast and says he should now be ‘killed’ if the team doesn’t make it past the group phases.

He said this after his team qualified for the next edition of the African nations cup in Ivory Coast, especially after his team blew a two-goal advantage to draw 2-2 with the Liberians the previous week. 

He believes that South Africa should be a side regularly competing at the continent’s top tournament.

“This is a country that normally should be at every Afcon, and I did not understand why we couldn’t qualify in the last years. This win was important for us because we had a new team with young players, and we did it. We can only progress over the next 10 months with good preparations against opponents from whom we can learn something,” said the tactician.

In the game's final five minutes, South Africa had to hang on for precious life, with Liberia threatening to pull off another remarkable comeback.

Despite some nervous moments in the match, South Africa prevailed in Monrovia, beating Liberia 2-1.
