Furman Wants Big Bafana Work Rate

Dean Furman, the combative Bafana Bafana midfielder, wants his teammates to work extra hard when they come up against Brazil at FNB Stadium tomorrow night.

The 25-year-old, who made his Bafana debut against Brazil back in 2012, is likely to start in the centre of Gordon Igesund’s midfield tomorrow night as South Africa look to get one over on the 2014 World Cup hosts.

Speaking at today’s press conference, the Doncaster Rovers man said, “Our work rate is a given, and it should never be in question. Whoever is in our starting XI, and on our bench, should leave everything on the field. Anything less than 100% against big teams like Brazil and you’ll get found out.

“We’ll give them respect, but like Spain we don’t want to give them too much. We’ll go into this game with the same kind of belief that we did in that one, it’ll be difficult but we’re all very much looking forward to it.”

Meanwhile, Furman also touched on the fact that they were playing the hosts of a tournament that his nation unfortunately wouldn’t be at.

He added, “That day in Durban when we won our game only to find out that Ethiopia had also won their game will live with me forever. It was very disappointing, but it’s gone now, we have to focus on the future and the next task, which is the AFCON.”
