Bafana Bafana assistant coach Morena Ramoreboli feels the new players adapted well to the squad and his gameplan following their victory over Lesotho on Tuesday.
South Africa advanced to the Cosafa Cup semi-finals following their comfortable 4-0 victory over Lesotho at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium.
Although Bafana have already secured their progression to the last four with three consecutive wins in a row, they still have one game remaining in Group A against Zambia on Wednesday.
“What was important was for us to understand how we are going to integrate those that are coming in with those that have been here and secondly, make sure that you pick the right moment who to play and how,” Ramoreboli told SuperSport TV.
“I think we managed to get it right. Looking at how we played in the first 45 minutes and one would expect that the game would drop automatically in the second half because of the changes we made.
“We brought in Lebo [Maboe] who has not been playing with the rest of the group. We brought Konqobe in the middle. You look up front, we had to rest Letsaolo because we felt it was his first match, we needed to give him some rest.
“The boys adapted so well. We had a good gameplan and it was important for us to get a positive victory to give them the positive spirit.”
