After Bidvest Wits held Bafana Bafana’s Group A opponents Morocco to a 0-0 draw yesterday, Clive Barker says he is confident Bafana can beat them.
The coach, who led South Africa to a famous Africa Cup of Nations tournament victory in 1996, was impressed with the Atlas Lions, but says he reckons Bafana are the better team.
Bafana face Morocco at Moses Mabhida Stadium on January 27 in their last Group game.
“Morocco are a good team and they have proved that [on Wednesday],” Barker tells Wits’ official website.
“They had some skilful players who are capable of individual brilliance and they gave our defence a good working out.
“But having seen them play tonight, I am confident that Bafana can do well against them. Comparing Morocco to Bafana based on this match, I think we will beat them in the Nations Cup.”
