South Africa had a win over the host team at the unlikeliest of times as they oust Egypt out of the race of Africa Cup of Nations 2019.
AFCON 2019 is full of surprises as the Bafana Bafana has finally eliminated the seven times AFCON Champions last Sunday. Following an epic victory, South Africa’s captain Thulani Hlatshwayo believes that their performance was proof that they can deliver.
“This year’s continental tournament has been tough and making it into the Last 16 was a goal many did not expect us to reach.”
“We knew coming into the game with Egypt that we had to bring heroics. We had to prove to everyone, and more importantly, to our nation and to ourselves, that we could deliver.”
“Our preparation for that game was intense, we knew we had to give it everything we had, and it paid off.”
“We’ve now made it into the Afcon quarterfinals for the sixth time in our history.”
“This gives us an opportunity to really chase our dream to win.”
“Our next game is against Nigeria, our biggest rival team. We know playing them will be tough, but we have a clear understanding of our mission, and we’ll give it our all once again.”
“This is an opportunity for us to regain trust from the fans, to truly discover our identity and to have confidence in our capabilities.”
“As the captain, I’m confident in the team and what we can achieve.”
