Njabulo Ngcobo, confident that Bafana Bafana can stay top of Group G

Kaizer Chiefs’ Njabulo Ngcobo is confident that Bafana Bafana can stay top of Group G in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers “till the very end” and proceed to the third and final round of qualifiers on the road to Qatar 2022.

Ngcobo received rave reviews for his solid central midfield display in Bafana’s 1-0 win over Ethiopia in Tuesday’s home FIFA World Cup qualifier at FNB Stadium, which saw South Africa consolidate their top spot in the group ahead of Ghana’s Black Stars.

Ngcobo is pleased to have played a part as Bafana made it three wins in a row in FIFA World Cup qualifying matches.

“We did very well. We can do much better, but everything is on track. It was important to win because we were at home,” Ngcobo said on his return to Club duties at FNB Stadium.

Ngcobo, who was commended widely for his performance against the Ethiopians, was equally pleased to have had some game time.

“I was happy to get some minutes. It is important to play. I think that I am getting there,” Ngcobo said modestly.

Bafana now lead the group, one point ahead of Ghana with two games to go against Zimbabwe at home and Ghana away in November. Ngcobo is confident that they will see out these games and qualify for the third and final qualifying round as group winners.

His answer on whether Bafana will get over the line was a short one as he said: “I am confident we will stay number one till the end”. said Ngcobo
