South Africa in must-win game against Zimbabwe

South Africa face a must-win clash in their 2022 World Cup Qualifying campaign when they host Group G rivals Zimbabwe at FNB Stadium today.

South Africa picked up back-to-back wins over Ethiopia in October to remain at the top of the log, though Ghana are just one point behind.

With the Black Stars favourites to win their match, Bafana Bafana will likely be playing to try and reclaim top spot and ensure they take a points advantage into their showdown with Ghana in Cape Coast on the evening of Sunday 14 November.

“We have to focus on the fact that we have to win [the first match against Zimbabwe,” said SA coach Hugo Broos. “If we don’t win the game, what importance can the game in Ghana have? We need to be there with one point ahead, maybe more. Ghana have the pressure to win against us, so we have the pressure to win against Zimbabwe.”
