Veteran Ghanaian football coach Joseph Emmanuel Sarpong says South Africa will be tough opposition for the Black Stars in the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers following the appointment of Coach Hugo Broos.
The former Indomitable Lions coach has been appointed to lead the Bafana Bafana on a five-year contract.
He replaces Molefi Nteski who was fired for failing to qualify Bafana Bafana to next year’s Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.
According to Coach Sarpong SAFA has appointed a coach who has experience in playing against big teams on the continent.
“South Africa will prepare very well for the Black Stars that is why they have gone for an experienced coach. It will not be easy for the Black Stars but we have an advantage over them. I have the confidence in our coaches and they should be bold in their selections as well”, he told Happy FM.
Hugo Broos won the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations title with Cameroon before he left the job.
Ghana is in the same group as South Africa, Ethiopia and Zimbabwe for the 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
Meanwhile the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifiers has been postponed from June to September due to the coronavirus pandemic on the continent, a statement from CAF indicated.
