Broos reveals game plan for Ethiopia clash

SA National Teams

Bafana Bafana boss Hugo Broos has revealed some clues about his game plan for the weekend's 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Ethiopia. 

South Africa are set to resume their World Cup qualification campaign on Saturday when they go head to head with Group G rivals Ethiopia in Bahir Dar.

The national team arrived safely in Ethiopia on Friday morning ahead of the encounter, which Bafana Bafana will be looking to control from the offset, according to Broos. 

"We know that the opponent has some qualities, so we have to be careful with that, but on the other side, it's about what we are going to do when we have the ball," the Belgian tactician said.

"Yesterday [Wednesday] we did two sessions and today [Thursday] we had another session and I think the players understand now what we have to do when the opponent has the ball and we have to when we have the ball, this is very important because we want to win.

"We will try to have the game under control. If we don't have the game under control, we will suffer for 90 minutes. Once we have control of the game, then we can do what we would like to do..."

South Africa currently top the Group G standings ahead of Ghana, Ethiopia, and Zimbabwe, having taken four points from their opening two qualifiers against the Warriors and the Black Stars.
