Maboe Delighted With Bafana Reaction

Man of the Match Lebohang Maboe was pleased with the way Bafana Bafana bounced back from their quarter-final defeat following Tuesday's thrashing of Namibia.

Maboe bagged a brace while Aubrey Modiba and Siyanda Xulu were also on target as Bafana thumped Namibia 4-1 to advance to the Cosafa Cup plate final.

The Maritzburg United midfielder believes the team showed great character to pick up a big win after Sunday's defeat.

“I think we came back very strong. We know that we lost our first game and we had showed character coming into the game, which we did very well hence we won the game,” Maboe told SuperSport after the game.

Maboe contributed immensely, finding the net twice in the first half, but rued the near misses in the second half that prevented him from securing a hat-trick.
 
“I know (laughs). If I was a lot more composed, I think I was going to score the third goal but it did not come. I’m just glad we did well as a team,” he added.
 
Bafana will now await the winners of the other semi-final between Lesotho and Botswana to see who they will meet in the final.
