Reacting to the outcome of the game, Broos said: “I have to congratulate my players. As you know or you don’t know, we had a terrible travel to Nigeria on Wednesday.

South Africa will be back in action next week when they will take on Zimbabwe while the Eagles will face Benin Republic on Tuesday in Côte d’Ivoire.
