The controversial coach, Broos said he was disappointed because the opponent enjoyed good numbers in the stands and he called on the local fans to rally behind Bafana.
Coming back to the match, Broos said they encountered difficult moments and emphasised the need for the fans in the stadiums.
“First of all, I had the feeling it’s an away game today. It’s a little bit disappointing that again when you see today the stadium there were more supporters from Congo than for us,” he told journalists per iDiskiTimes.
“I hope in the future that we will have more support.
“You see today also when you have the fans behind you what that can give. Congo believed even more, they grew in the game, they were supported.”
