Furman bullish ahead AFCON
Doncaster Rovers midfielder Dean Furman is confident South Africa will not go to Equatorial Guinea just to sight-see but try to win the Nations Cup title.
South Africa face an uphill task in Equatorial Guinea after being thrown into the lions den with Ghana, Algeria and Senegal. However, their captain, Dean Furman, insists they are not there to make up the numbers but compete meritoriously.
“There’s no point in us turning up if we don’t believe we can go and win it,” said Furman via The Star.
“Our group is incredibly tough with three top teams full of players playing in Europe’s top leagues, so we know it’s going to be difficult.
“But there’s no point in us going into the competition without the belief we can go all the way, and that will be the focus for us.
“We’re going into the tournament with a lot of confidence after our qualification campaign,” he added.
