Ngcongca, who recently hailed Andile Jali’s dominance in Belgian football, explained that one of his teammates was very impressed with Bafana Bafana.

“Amazing, amazing! When I got back to Belgium, I received incredible feedback about the way we play,” he responded when asked how Bafana’s performance was viewed in Belgium.

“I was speaking to one of my teammates, Sekou Cisse, the Ivorian. He said the good teams went out early in the tournament, and he mentioned South Africa, Gabon and Cape Verde. He said these were the teams that made an impression in the tournament in terms of the way they played – the one-two's, etc.”

The 27-year-old also revealed how another teammate, Senegalese Kara Mbodj, who scored Senegal’s goal against Bafana, hailed the play of Mashaba’s men.

“Even after the game against Senegal, my other teammate, Kara Mbodj told me, "Hey, man, I played in the first match against Ghana, but I never ran the way I did today. I didn’t know where to go because of you guys.’"
