Bvuma banking on new Bafana generation


Kaizer Chiefs shot-stopper Bruce Bvuma is confident that the new Bafana Bafana generation will fly the South African flag high in their quest to qualify for the 2022 Fifa World Cup due to be held in Qatar.

Bvuma was on the bench when Bafana crushed Ethiopia 3-1 in the World Cup qualifier clash at the Bahir Dar stadium this past Saturday.

The goal-minder expressed his excitement to have been part of Saturday’s squad and insisted that he knew they will walk away victorious even after Ethiopia equalised.

“I was not nervous for the game, I knew we were good enough to win. We have played games like this before on the continent with Chiefs,” said the 26-year-old goalie.

“I knew we would come back and we did. We are feeling good and happy to have won away from home.

“I am proud of the hard work being put in and supporting the team from the bench felt great because we all contributed. The points are important for us as a country and now we are back home looking to finish the job.”

The Leratong-born footballer continued: “We have a new generation of players and being part of this team makes me want to work harder.”

Hugo Broos’ side is currently top of Group G with seven points from three outings, just a point ahead of second placed Ghana.

“As we are leading the group, we need to win our games, focus on ourselves and get maximum points and hopefully go all the way,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bafana Bafana will lock horns with the Ethiopian side in a return of the World Cup qualifiers this evening at FNB Stadium with the kick-off set for 18:00.
