Two thousand supporters were in attendance for the crucial World Cup qualifier between Bafana Bafana and Ethiopia at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg this evening.  

On Saturday, Bafana picked up a crucial win away to Ethiopia, and in the return fixture, the South Africans kept up that winning momentum.  

They beat Ethiopia by a solitary goal to remain at the top of Group G with 10 points from 4 matches. 

Meanwhile, in the other Group G encounter, Ghana beat Zimbabwe 1-0, and this means it’s now a two-horse race to the one qualifying spot into the third round. 

Yesterday, Bafana Bafana coach, Hugo Broos, credited his players for the way they have responded with the team looking to have improved a lot just a month after his appointment.    

Bafana Bafana’s recent results, especially the victory against Ghana and Saturday’s 3-1 win over Ethiopia going into Tuesday’s encouter at the FNB Stadium had made even the team’s staunchest critic believe the team might qualify for the FIFA World Cup.  

The team seems to have a new found fighting spirit which made it secure a positive and impressive result away in Ethiopia on Saturday.   

But the Belgian coach refused to take the credit saying the players’ hard work is paying off.
