Gallery: Bafana Celebrate Fifth COSAFA Cup Title

Bafana Bafana assistant coach Morena Ramoreboli praised his players for fighting through the pain in the COSAFA Cup final.

The South Africans claimed their fifth COSAFA Cup title after defeating Senegal 5-4 on penalties at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.

This is Bafana's first COSAFA triumph since 2018 and Romoreboli, who was standing in for Helman Mkhalele, revealed some footballers played with injuries.

"It was not easy, you could even see today. Even those boys who were struggling with injuries, they had to continue fighting , they had to continue playing," the coach told SuperSport after the game.

"I think they understood that they are no longer playing for any other thing except the badge, except for the country and they did that very well. I'm so excited, I'm happy.

"Last year we managed to win it with under-17s and here we are again with Bafana today. It's a great achievement. It is through hard work and the support we got from the association, it made things very easy for us.

"In football we have what we called tactical endurance. We had to rely on them to execute whatever we drilled, even under pressure and secondly, there was a stage where I kept on saying to them 'Let's play with our hearts' because I could see they were becoming tired but they had to remember, they can't give up and they had through to the extra-time with the same spirit and honestly speaking, we are very happy."
