World Cup 2010 Exclusive: Gavin Hunt Bemoans 'Tough' Draw For South Africa

The experienced South African coach had troubling words for Bafana after they received a difficult World Cup group.
South Africa were given a cruel group containing two previous world champions in France and Uruguay, as well as dangerous North American side Mexico in the final draw for next year’s World Cup, completed on Friday night in Cape Town.

Goal.com contacted double PSL winning coach Gavin Hunt to get his views on the draw.

The Supersport United head coach believes that a miracle will be needed to save Bafana’s pride on home soil.

“Tough group for South Africa in general, we have to do the best we can to progress to the next round. Bafana can do well against France, every game is going to be tough though.

Hunt refused to put his head on the block on who would eventually win the tournament.

“I can’t certainly predict who will win the group and of course the World Cup is even more tough to single out any team as the possible winners.” 

He believes that there is no Group of Death but singled out Group G as a major battlefield.

“I think the Brazil- Portugal Group is the toughest, but anything can happen in a match like that,” concluded Hunt.
