South Africa goalkeeper Ronwen Williams has stated unequivocally that the Bafana Bafana have turned a corner from their poor start to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations and expects a difficult game against Nigeria in Wednesday’s quarterfinals clash in Cairo.
Williams who had a superlative performance in South Africa’s Round of 16 victory over hosts Egypt spoke to the media at Tuesday’s press conference ahead of the Nigeria match.
“Our performance in the opening first few games were not up to standard. We knew we could play better and we were getting a lot of flak and stick back home,” Williams reflected.
“So (in that win over Egypt) we were just basically reminding them (fans back home) to believe in the team because we didn’t come here to perform badly.
