Bafana captain disappointed with draw
The South African team drew 2-2 to the Super Eagles at the Akwa Ibom International Stadium on Wednesday evening – which put them on top of the Group A log with 12 points, only four points ahead of Nigeria.
“We have shown how far we have come and we are very disappointed about not winning the game,” said Furman.
“We are looking forward to the AFCON now, but we have a lot of work to do.
“We have a good group and we have got some good players fighting for positions. We are looking good.”
Bafana forward, Tokelo Rantie, scored both goals for Bafana, scoring the second goal close to the end of the second half, making the team 1 point ahead with two minutes remaining on the clock. However, Nigerian forward, Sone Aluko, scored the equalising goal in the last minute of the game.
Furman added that if it was not for their coach, Shakes Mashaba, they would not be such a success.
“He (Shakes Mashaba) has been excellent for us, he has installed a pride in the team and you saw that on the pitch today, the boys are willing to put their head on the line for their country – we are fighting for our shirt, we want to win every ball, we want score every goal and as a unit we have a very focused group and that is all down to the coach,” Furman said after the game.
