South Africa head coach Hugo Broos is anticipating a big challenge against Rwanda in Tuesday’s FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture.

Bafana Bafana have travelled to Butare for this group C match after beating Benin 2-1 in Durban last week.

“It will be every game a battle – they will be fighting for good results,” said Broos.

“You saw what happened with Nigeria drawing at home on Thursday against Lesotho. You saw with the others – Rwanda drawing with Zimbabwe at home on Wednesday.

“If you create more chances than goals or more goals than chances when you win the game – that is the most important thing in the World Cup qualifiers.

“So, when you can win those games, that is the most important thing. In two days’ time, nobody talks about the game except the results – and winning these matches is the most important thing.”

Six Mamelodi Sundowns players were in South Africa’s starting XI for the match with Benin.

Bafana had six Sundowns players – Ronwen Williams, Mothobi Mvala, Khuliso Mudau, Aubrey Modiba, Teboho Mokoena and Themba Zwane – in the starting XI for the fixture with Benin.

“I will not tell you that it’s because of those Sundowns players that we won the game. For me, it doesn’t matter if it’s a Sundowns player or Pirates player or even Chippa player. but what’s important is that I have a team, so it is not because of them or because of others,” added Broos.
