Head coach of the South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, Hugo Broos has blatantly statd that the absence of Osimhen is Finidi George’s problem and not his team, platinumnewsmg.com is reporting.

In a pre-match press conference ahead of the crucial FIFA 2026 World Cup Qualifiers, Broos was full of confidence of his team who landed in Uyo on Thursday morning.

“Uyo is a good hunting ground. Tomorrow (Friday) is another game, it’s a new game, we are confident because since AFCON, everyone in South Africa has started to believe in their team because the results were so good.

“We will start tomorrow’s game with a lot of confidence, but again, it’s a game of football. You saw what happened in AFCON, I think we were as good as Nigeria but penalties decided the game and it’s not possible tomorrow or maybe it can be a penalty that will decide the game, but you know what that means, it will be decided in 90 minutes and I think we will be able to make a good result.”

On Osimhen he stated, it isn’t his team’s problem.

“Osimhen not playing is the problem of Nigeria’s coach, not my problem,” he said.

South Africa lost to Nigeria’s Super Eagles in the semi final of the just concluded Africa Cup of Nations in Cote d’ivoire. Both teams will battle for maximum points in Uyo by 8pm for a better chance to qualify.
