Ronwen Williams has shed some insight on Bafana Bafana’s dismal draw against Liberia on Friday night as the two teams prepare to renew their rivalry on Tuesday.
Bafana threw away a 2-0 lead in the second half and allowed a spirited Liberia side to steal a valuable point towards 2023 AFCON qualification.
So lackluster was the display at Orlando Stadium, that it prompted head coach Hugo Broos to march down the tunnel even before the final whistle, and even boycott the post-match press conference, a decision he has since apologised for.
"Obviously we were a little bit disappointed, in fact we were very disappointed because we were in the driving seat, things were looking good for us, especially going into the half-time break," Williams told SAFA media.
"But we ae all so disappointed because the coach made a note to us that we need to be serious and we don’t have to take the game lightly because they can come back and they are going to throw everything at us.
"The coach is very experienced and he knew what he was speaking about and us as players we disappointed that we allowed the Liberians back into the game.
"Obviously we created so many chances so, it’s a learning curve for us to learn from this to become better as a team, to play for 95 minutes.
"Football is not only about one half, hopefully, we’ve learnt out lesson and we won’t the same mistakes.
Kick-off is at 18:00 (SA time).
