    Bafana Bafana midfielder Bongani Zungu says that his side’s 2-0 victory over Nigeria on Saturday was a collective team effort.

    Vitoria Guimaraes midfielder insists that his side’s ability to stick to their tactics and follow the coaches’ instructions helped them overcome the Super Eagles on Saturday.

    “We were up against a good team. Nigeria has some quality stars, but we played to instructions, communicated with each other and the outcome was there for all to see,” Zungu told Safa.net.

    “We were compact in the opening 20 minutes, but once we realised we can open them up, we went for the jugular and boy.”

    Zungu hailed the ability of Erick Mathoho, Tebogo Langerman, Ramahlwe Mphahlele and captain Thulani Hlatshwayo, claiming that they played as if their lives depended on this game.

    “They were disciplined and outstanding. That is what wins your away games; a solid defence, especially in the opening minutes. Our guys never gave anything away,” he added.

    “But Keagan Dolly and Dean also helped mop up the defence when they needed numbers.”

    The Bafana Bafana midfielder says he always looking forward to playing for the national team and will continue to work harder and make the country proud.

    “I am so excited with the result; this was a collective team effort; it is nice to bring happiness to the country,” Zungu concluded.
