What’s the story?   

In what was a happy outing for coach Hugo Broos, the young Bafana Bafana outfit overcame a tricky Ghanaian side in their most recent World Cup qualifier.

In the early exchanges of the game, both teams struggled to get any form of rhythm going, however, it was South Africa who had the better chances in front of goals throughout the game.

   

Getting In On Goal

The game also proved to be somewhat of a physically demanding challenge for the youthful South African side, with the West Africans showcasing their usual grit and strength in trying to stifle Bafana Bafana.

Bafana Bafana managed to infiltrate the Ghanaian goalposts in the 83rd minute, when Bongokuhle Hlongwane’s scruffy effort rolled into the back of the net, much to the delight of the players as they ran to the corner flag in celebration.

 

Bafana’s New Star

That being said, one of the players who caught the eyes of many who watched on with keen interest was that of Ethan Brooks.

Judging by the reactions on social media, the 20-year-old could well have been named the Man of the Match, in spite of Hlongwane who ultimately grabbed the accolade.

Supporters praised Brook’s maturity levels at his young age, as the TS Galaxy man showcased his technical ability, composure and neat touches against a tough Ghanaian midfield.
