AFCON AFCON 2023: Williams credits South Africa teammates for Cape Verde heroics

South Africa goalkeeper Ronwen William has credited to his entire teammates and the technical staff for his heroic display following Bafana Bafana’s semi-final qualification at the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast on Saturday.

The Bafana Bafana shot-stopper not only kept Cape Verde at bay during the 120 minutes of play, but further denied the Blue Sharks four times in the penalty shoot-out to lead his side to the next round where they will face Nigeria.

“It was tough. They played their part and it was my time to play my part,” said William in crediting his teammates and back-end staff., adding: “I am just glad that we are in the next round. This is not mine but it is for the collective.

“The staff, technical team and each player. This journey has been tough but we soldiered on as a team so I will accept this on behalf of each and every player in Bafana Bafana.”

Bafana Bafana will take on the Super Eagles in the semi-finals at the Stade de la Paix in Bouake on Wednesday.
