‘Hopefully Our Cup Triumph Can Rub Off On Bafana’

Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Ronwen Williams is hopeful that he can bring the needed confidence and experience in to the national team setup.

The SuperSport United shot-stopper recently lifted the 2019 MTN8 trophy and will now have the opportunity to secure more silverware with the national team in the Nelson Mandela Challenge this weekend.

Speaking to the South African Football Association ahead of this weekend, Williams seemed confident that the national team will be able to do the job on Sunday, despite no international friendly encounters since the Africa Cup Of Nations competition.

“Apart from a few of the guys that are injured, the camp has been fine, the structure is there, and the guys that are coming in - they’ve gelled easily with the team, we made it easy for them to adapt and the coach made it easy as well, he didn’t come in to try and change a lot. It is standard and we all are professional, we know why we are here so it is all up to us to listen to the coach,” he said. 

“There are a few of us with high confidence, I am happy for someone like Bradley Grobler who had his problems, but this season he started well, he’s banging in goals, so hopefully our triumph this past week can inspire the guys, we are a small team in South Africa but every season we are challenging and hopefully it can rub off on the (national) team,” Williams added.
