Bafana Bafana want DRC scalp, says Hugo Broos

Bafana Bafana boss Hugo Broos says he's gunning for victory over the Democratic Republic of the Congo in their international friendly on Tuesday.

Broos' side drew 0-0 with Namibia in their first friendly on Saturday and after the game said that he was unconcerned with the result as he tested out a number of new players.

South Africa are preparing for the upcoming Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup qualifiers and the national team boss is not yet settled on his best line-up.

But in a bid to win over critics, the Belgian tactician admitted he will not hold back against the DR Congo, who are expected to be a stronger opponent than the Namibians.

The head coach said in the Sowetan: "It's a new opponent in the AFCON qualifier and they are a better team than Namibia, with more quality.

"They also play differently than Namibia and I think it will be a nice game to watch than what we saw on Saturday, not only from our side, but I think two teams will play for a win."

Broos added: "The results are important, we change our mindset a little bit now. For this game against Congo, it is the results that are important.

"We have to see that we win that game. I would not want to end the camp with a draw and a defeat, not at all. Also for the players, there will be another mindset. It will not be the same team, that's for sure. As I have said, we are following the plans, so everyone will have his chance.

"It will be a little bit of a different team. I expect more of that team. I want to see the Bafana team from what I saw in the past against Morocco and against Liberia here.

"I want to see that team; we are playing for a victory, that's for sure."
