Nobody gave us a chance to get this far- Hugo Broos



South Africa head coach Hugo Broos has said his side is motivated to play against Nigeria in the semi-finals of the TotalEnergies CAF Africa Cup of Nations Côte d’Ivoire 2023, CAFonline reports.


According to Hugo Broos, getting to the semi-finals motivates them based on the country’s recent performance in the TotalEnergies CAF AFCON.


“We are delighted and motivated that we play tomorrow in the semi-finals of the TotalEnergies CAF AFCON; for many people, it was unexpected, but we did it and ensured South Africa became a good team, and also it’s more than 20 years ago that South Africa played in the semi-finals and even more than that we played in the finals, so what that means is that we have a lot of motivation,” he said.


The Belgian tactician admitted to Nigeria’s quality but maintained his confidence in his squad for the crucial game.


“We are playing against a good team tomorrow, number 6 in the ranking, that means a lot for players playing for us.


In recent meetings, Nigeria has had the upper hand on South Africa, but it’s not a worrying situation for Hugo Broos.


“For many, Nigeria is the favorite to win, but it’s not always the case in football; we are confident and motivated to try and ensure it doesn’t happen, and South Africa will play in the final for the first time in 20 years,” he concluded.
