Igesund: We did ok

2012-09-12 08:01

Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund says that he still has a lot of work to do with the team despite their 2-0 win over Mozambique on Tuesday.

South Africa came into the game off of a 1-0 defeat away to Brazil, but Igesund did not have to wait long for his first win in charge of the team as they saw off the Mambas thanks to a brace from Bernard Parker.

"It was a difficult game. We travelled through four time zones, you know, the bodies of the players were tired tonight(Tuesday)," he said.

"I'm satisfied, we did ok. we weren't great tonight. We kept the ball, our passing and movement (was good), we still gave the ball away too much.

"But I can't expect more after four days of training. I'm happy with the attitude, I'm happy that we won the game and I was also able to throw in a couple of young players in there to give them a chance.

"We've got a lot of work to do still. When we keep the ball, we've got to turn it into a quick attack. At the end of the day, we've played two games and it's something to build on. We've really got a lot of work to do.

"I don't think we've turned the corner, but we're on the right track. Come the African Cup of Nations we want to be a machine, we want to go out there and be a machine."

    Gordon, I'm not comparing u at all but what I saw in your two games was the beginning of the 1996 Squad that won the CAFCON CUP. Well done Sir!

    how refreshing to watch Bafana without wanting to throw a brick through the tv. Not even England in HD could lure me away from the enjoyable Bafana match. Keep it up Gordon, there might be hope for SA football after all.

    Gordon you're such a coach, with experience, ambitious. I like what you did from the game against Samba boys, nd yesterdays game was so fast it ws like I'm watching teams from Barcley Premier League. You've introduced the boys from PSL League nd few of South African international players. Last night game was preety awesome....you're the coach that I recommand here in South Africa. All the best Mr Igusend.

  • ddnjozela - 2012-09-12 11:37

    Dean Furman, where have u been this whole lol..great perfomance by the boys..we still want t be the machine Gordon talks of..

      tinotenda.panashe - 2012-09-12 12:27

      but I still don't believe Dean furman was man of the match. it was Bernard Parker by a mile.

  • heiku.staude - 2012-09-12 12:31

    Right now Bafana Bafana are better than the Springboks. .. The boks should gave stuck with divvie, at least he wasnt biased towards one province.

      heiku.staude - 2012-09-12 13:37

      FYI I want both of them to be machines that keep on winning.

    Gordon has a golden touch,give him any bunch of players and he will make them superstars.He is a coach,manager and a good motivator for our boys.He can see a talent from a distance,look @ a young man Dean Furman,watching him controlling his passes is amazing.Safa must review your salary,Pitso earned R 800 000pm and you are getting R400 000pm.Well done Gordon
