The outspoken and controversial Bafana coach, Broos is aware that Congo is a new opponent from their COSAFA rivals, saying it will be a nice game to watch.
He also stated that he doesn’t want a draw and a defeat during this current FIFA international window.
“It’s a new opponent in the Afcon [Africa Cup of Nations] qualifier and they are a better team than Namibia, with more quality,” Broos told the media.

“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.
“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.”
BROOS TO RING CHANGES AGAINST CONGO
With the likes of skipper Ronwen Williams and Percy Tau having been sidelined in the clash against Namibia’s Brave Warriors, Broos will likely make changes in his line-up.
Besides Al Ahly’s Tau, Orlando Pirates striker Zakhele Lepasa is one of the players who could be back in the starting eleven.
“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,” he said.
“I want to see that team; we are playing for a victory, that’s for sure.”
