AFCON 2023: South Africa thrashed Namibia to get back on track

In the match for the second day of the AFCON 2023, South Africa bounced back perfectly in Pool E with a clear victory over neighboring Namibia.Hugo Broos' side won 4-0 to take second place in the group behind Mali (4 pts).

In the second match of the second day of Group E at the AFCON 2023, South Africa made no bones about it. The South Africans beat Namibia 4-0 on Sunday January 21. Percy Tau, who was unlucky to miss a penalty in the 0-2 loss to Mali, was unflappable this time. Hugo Broos' attacking leader converted his spot-kick in the 14th minute to open the scoring. His sidekick Themba Zwane then came off the bench to score twice (25th, 40th).Bafana Bafana went into the break with a 3-0 lead. A logical scoreline, since although Namibia had the ball (54% possession), the South Africans took more shots (6, 5 on target) than the Brave Warriors, who fired 4 times and 1 on target.

In the second half, Bafana Bafana stepped up their attacks. A strategy that paid off, as Maseko (75th) scored the 4th goal to round off the scoring. The biggest victory of this AFCON 2023. In the other game in the group, Mali and Tunisia drew 1-1 on Saturday January 20. With this victory, South Africa are second in Group E with 3 points, behind Mali (4 pts). Namibia (3rd, 3 pts) and Tunisia (4th, 1 pt) are behind. For Matchday 3 on Wednesday January 24, the South Africans face Tunisia, while Namibia take on Mali.
