Bafana thump Sierra Leone [Highlights]

We chose easy opponents to win – Hugo Broos

β€œWe chose these teams because we didn’t want any more big teams and again have a defeat.” Bafana coach Hugo Broos said as quoted by TimesLive.

β€œThen we saw what happened with Ghana, even when we had six games. Four wins and one draw, people were not happy because we lost to Ghana.

β€œThen we [suffered] a big defeat to France, nobody talked about the world champions … it was a humiliation.

β€œThen came Morocco, it was a little bit the same as Ghana. Because Bafana can’t lose in Morocco.

β€œWe couldn’t afford to play against a big, strong team and have a defeat again.”

If we don’t play on a good level against these teams we will have trouble again.”
