Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has called on his charges to stay grounded as they prepare to face minnows Cape Verde in the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations.

In a tournament that has seen a number of upsets – Senegal, Tunisia, Algeria and Egypt have all gone home already – South Africa pulled off yet another giant killing act on Tuesday night as they beat World Cup semi-finalists Morocco 2-0.

Speaking after the game a delighted Broos told the media: “We came here with the first aim of getting out of our group.

“We were delighted to do that, but you can’t be certain of going any further when you come up against Morocco.

“On Saturday we will once again be playing against a dangerous team, and we can’t make the mistake of underestimating them.

“Ï don’t think I have to tell you that I am very happy today. We beat Morocco.

“And it is not only because we are in the quarterfinals, but beating a team like Morocco is something special.

“This is a very good team with very good players, but we did the right analysis, and today the tactics were the right ones.

“The first half was nearly not a game — I thought both teams were a little bit afraid of each other. The second half was more open, with a few chances for Morocco, but we scored. And that is always important, to score the first goal.
