Former Bafana Bafana defender and current Bloemfontein Celtic coach, Clinton Larsen has enthused with Goal.com South Africa that Bafana’s display against Angola was great to watch.
Larsen was impressed with the attacking system that coach Gordon Igesund employed against the Angolans.
“This was a much improved performance from our national team. We were more offensive and created a lot of scoring opportunities and it paid off at the end of the day,” said Larsen.
Larsen also stated that Igesund should not make any major changes to his starting line up when Bafana face Morocco in their final group A match of the 2013 Afcon on Sunday.
“I don’t think Gordon should make too many changes against Morocco. The team did well and as a coach, you don’t change a winning combination,” he said.
Despite scoring two goals against Angola, Larsen refused to believe that Bafana’s goalscoring problem is over.
“It’s too early to say our goalscoring problem is gone. I think we should wait for the next game and see,” said Larsen, who won himself two caps with Bafana in 1997.
Igesund though, stated in the post match conference that Morocco is a different team and would obviously need to be approached differently. He says he took a risk against Angola, and wouldn't need to do so in the last game when a draw is sufficient to progress.
