Woooooo! Broos Get’s ‘Rick Flair’ Nickname After FIFA WC Qualifier Victory

The South African national team now sits at the summit of their FIFA World Cup qualifier group, after a 3-1 victory over Ethiopia this past weekend.

Going into the round of qualifiers, Broos came under much scrutiny from supporters on social media, with his player selection coming under the spotlight

 

Broos’ Praises

That, however, has been forgotten about in the interim, as fans have slowly begun singing his praises. When it comes to nicknames and South African football, only the good and popular have the honour of receiving such, with Broos seemingly next in line.

 

Rick Flair

Named 'Rick Flair' after the iconic WWE entertainer, Broos could well have gotten the name because of how he resembles the ex-wrestler, as seen by Twitter reactions. 

With his cotton white hair, Bafana's Rick Flair is now beginning to creep into the hearts of Mzansi footy fans as they look to qualify for the Qatar showpiece.

Here are some of the reactions:
