‘It’s a great opportunity for us’ for South Africa as they seek to bounce back from World Cup defeat

Cheats

As South Africa gears up for the World Cup, they face the task of trying to bounce their World Cup campaign back after a disappointing defeat by Uruguay.

The South Africans have played their first World Cup qualifiers of the tournament in four years, as well as the second round of the Africa Cup of Nations, but they have yet to win in Brazil.

Injuries and suspensions have hindered them, while coach Ange Postecoglou has conceded the side’s form is “down and out”.

Postecollgou was speaking to the BBC’s Sport programme about South Africa’s chances in the World Cups and World Cup Qualifiers.

“We’ve had some injuries, suspensions and suspensions that have affected our form in certain phases of the game, but we’ve still got to make sure we are mentally strong to get back to the World Championships,” he said.

He added: “It [the World Cup] has been a great experience for us and it will be a great tournament to come back to. “

But I’d say we’re in a good position.”

We have a chance to get the win over Germany and Argentina in the final and the last two matches, we’ll see what happens.” “

The next three games are very important.

We have a chance to get the win over Germany and Argentina in the final and the last two matches, we’ll see what happens.”

A big day for South African football The hosts were forced to settle for a draw against Uruguay, a game in which they were unable to create many clear-cut chances.

The win was their first win since beating Portugal 2-1 in the group stage in February.

It was also their first draw in the knockout stages of the World Championship, a competition they have not qualified for since 2006.

South Africa had only won two matches in World Cup qualifying before that game.

Postecolgou added: We have been unlucky in our World Cup qualification, but I think we can bounce back and I’m sure we can make it.

“I’ve had the best experience with the players in the squad.

I think the best way to put it is we have the best team, we have a very strong group of players, we’ve got a lot of confidence, we know what we have to do and I think that’s what we can achieve.”
