Mphela wants to keep playing in Durban
Bafana Bafana striker Katlego Mphela says it “feels nice” to win again in Durban and wishes that the team could continue playing matches in the city.
Bafana Bafana beat Angola 2-0 in their second Africa Nations Cup Group A match, played at Moses Mabhida Stadium.
If they top the group, they will stay in the city and play the quarterfinal there. If they win that, Bafana Bafana will play their semifinal in Durban too.
"It's our first win of the tournament and it is nice to win again in Durban. We scored two goals which is a confidence booster and we need to keep the momentum going," Mphela said.
Asked to compare the crowd reaction at Soccer City in the opening game, when the players were booed off the field, to Durban this evening, Mphela had this to say.
"I prefer to play in Durban because we seem to do well here. The people really seem to get behind you here so if we can stay here that will be great.”
