Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos says the upcoming friendly against France could be an opportunity for some South African players to introduce themselves to the European market.
“I am very happy that we will be playing a big friendly international against France. We are also just waiting to hear who will be our second opponents,” Broos was quoted as saying as per the Sunday World.
“France are the world champions and our players will learn a lot from playing against such a powerful team. They have world-class players such as Kylian Mbappe, Olivier Giroud, N’Golo Kante, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann and Hugo Lloris and it will be great if we can measure ourselves against such high calibre stars.
“I am sure our young players are excited about this prospect.
“It is also an opportunity to advertise our players in front of the world because other African countries have their players in the big leagues in the world.
“Maybe clubs can see our players against France and have an interest in them? Right now, the big clubs in the world do not know our players.
