Speaking during the post-match press conference after South Africa defeated Cape Verde, Broos said, according to France24: “It is maybe bizarre for me to say that but for us our AFCON has already been a success.

“We are in the semi-finals. Nobody thought we would do that when we left South Africa to come here.

“There will be less pressure on us [when will face Nigeria], I am certain of that. That doesn’t mean we don’t want to play the final, certainly not.”
