FIFA WCQ 2022: South Africa hopes for a one-two against Ethiopia to increase their chances of qualification

South Africa hopes to complete the double against Ethiopia in the current qualifiers for the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Tuesday.

Bafana Bafana beat the same opponent 3-1 in Bahir Dar on Saturday and improved to seven points after three games, one point ahead of Ghana, who defeated Zimbabwe with the same result.

A win against the same opponent increases their chances of qualifying for the next round of World Cup qualifiers.

“It was a very difficult game on a very tough pitch. I told the players before the game that we don’t need a trophy of the best football, we need the title of the team with the most character,” said Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos Follow-up.

“We showed that character, we fought for every ball and we won, and it’s a great win.”

In the head-to-head statistics, the two nations have faced each other on three previous occasions with Bafana Bafana’s first weekend win in this rivalry.
