Hugo Broos happy to face Guinea!

“For me these are important games, they are difficult games, but I asked for difficult games because I’ve been told that in the past it was not usually for Bafana Bafana to play tough friendly games,” Broos told reporters.

“It was always against, if I can say that, weak opponents and we were sure even before the game that they were going to win it.

“I think we are not sure if we are going to win these next two games but it will be a very good experience for all the players.

“And for me, it will be a good opportunity to see the new Bafana Bafana players, if they are really an improvement for us, if they can bring the power and the experience that I expect.

“I want to see these players out there and showing their quality so that they can be there in June and that we will have a stronger team than that we had for the World Cup qualifiers.

“I hope the games we are playing right now will give us what we expect and I’m sure we will be stronger Afcon qualifiers and that we will be there in Ivory Coast for the tournament.”
