Igesund: It Wasn't Our Day

On Sunday Bafana Bafana lost 2-1 to Ethiopia in a CAF Group A World Cup qualifier, shattering South Africa’s hopes of qualifying for the World Cup finals in Brazil.

The team arrived back home on Monday, from Addis Ababa, and coach Gordon Igesund admitted that it was not their day. Having broken the deadlock and taken a 1-0 lead, Bafana had the opportunity to increase their lead.

 

However, it was not to be as the hosts restored parity before a Bafana own goal handed the East Africans the victory. 

 

Igesund believes that as a team they played well and created goal scoring opportunities, although they were unable to convert them.

 

“It wasn’t our day. We played very well. We deserved to win the game but on the day things didn't work our way. We just needed a second goal to be safe but it never came and also conceded an own goal. 

 

The coach admitted that the loss was disappointing, before congratulating the East Africans. He concluded, “It is so painful but we tried our best. I have also to congratulate Ethiopia for the win.”
