Johannesburg – Bafana Bafana will return to action this afternoon for their second leg against Ethiopia at the FNB Stadium.
The South African national team will be hoping for a swift victory when they face the Ethopian side, who themselves are hoping to avenge themselves in the second leg of the qualifiers.
Coach Hugo Broos’ lads scooped a dazzling win in their first leg of the 2022 World Cup Qualifier, when they battered Ethiopian side with a snail win of 3-1 at their home ground.
The win is still evident in their smiles and chats, and the atmosphere in the camp is supercharged by this positivity.
Thanks to goals scored intensely by the likes of Teboho Mokoena, Mothobi Mvala and Evidence Makgopa.
These goals helped Bafana to top the Group G log with seven points ahead of strong-willed Ghana.

Broos said that Bafana will have to put more effort to snitch a win against Ethiopia this evening in bid to go to the next round of qualifiers.
“We have everything to win and Ethiopia have everything to lose, that is the difference of mentality,” stressed Broos.
“So, we have a little bit of an advantage when you compare us to our opponents. We know from the game that we played on Saturday [the 3-1 away win in Ethiopia] that we play against very strong opponents.
The Belgian tactician said players are all ready for the encounter and the camp has run a successful journey ahead of their encounter.
