SoccerBafana will treat wounded Ethiopia with respect

The Bafana Bafana coach, Hugo Broos, is convinced that his charges will be switched on mentally for this Tuesday evening’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia in Johannesburg.
The national side head into the crucial Group G game with confidence following Saturday’s 3-1 win in Bahir Dar.
Ethiopia has a lot to lose with a defeat, while South Africa has everything to gain.
Broos said his team knows what is required of them on Tuesday and they won’t target their counterparts as an easy win.
“I'm sure that mentality won't be in that team.
“I see how the guys are treating themselves, treating their team-mates and their training. If you look at the trip we made to Ethiopia, the guys were happy to be in training on Sunday evening.
“Just from looking at training, they certainly won't play with the mentality of having won in Ethiopia and this game will be an easy one.”
This evening’s all-important qualifier at the FNB Stadium kicks off at 18:00.
