South Africa top Group G with 10 points from their four games after a 1-0 victory in a World Cup qualifier at Soccer City. 

The game was also notable for the return of some 2000 fans to the stadium - the first time fans have been able to watch a live game since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic

Broos told the media after the game that a lot of work still needs to be done before fans can start booking their tickets to Qatar.

“It would be a miracle after two months' work that you immediately have a fantastic team. This is impossible, so we have to continue working as a technical team to go and watch more games to see more good players who can bring more quality to our team.

"But, in general, I can say now that we're not so far from the group of players that we’ll continue working for the next months or years."

Next up for Bafana Bafana is already eliminated Zimbabwe before a potentially group deciding clash in Ghana next month.
