Ahead of South Africa’s 1st match against Mali on Tuesday January 16, Bafana Bafana defender Khuliso Mudau explained Hugo Broos’ influence on the team.“He’s very important.He’s a very good coach. I believe that if we can apply exactly what he wants us to apply, we can do it,” he argued.
The 28-year-old right-back also commented on South Africa’s group, which includes Mali, Namibia and Tunisia.“It won’t be an easy group. But I think we have quality in the team with young and hungry players.We want to make sure we write history together,” he continued.
Finally, the player stressed that the experience of the Mamelodi Sundows players should help them in this tournament. There are 9 players from the club. “I think it will help us a lot to have players who play in the Champions League. You can’t compare it with the local league because the intensity isn’t the same. So I think it will help us a lot.”
