South Africa Confirm Hugo Broos As Bafana Bafana New head Coach

Hugo Broos has today (Wednesday) being confirmed as the new head coach of Bafana Bafana Wednesday following the sacking of Molefi Ntseki.

The 69-year-old Belgian, who won the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations with Cameroon in Gabon, will be tasked with attempting to lead the side to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.

The qualifiers were scheduled to start in June, but an AFP report on Tuesday said the the Confederation of African Football were set to postpone the opening qualifiers to September.

This will at least give Broos more time to prepare the side for the road ahead, with a tough group containing Zimbabwe, Ghana and Ethiopia, and only the group winners making it to the final round of World Cup qualifying.

Broos did well to take a Cameroon without many star names to AFCON glory in 2017, beating Egypt in the final in Libreville.
