Bafana starlet Brooks leads the way for a galaxy of new, young stars
TS Galaxy’s 20-year-old midfielder Ethan Brooks is revelling in the chance to play on the international stage
It took a quiet conversation with Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos to convince Ethan Brooks that he had what it took to start in a crucial 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifier against Ghana in Johannesburg last month.
At 20, Brooks was the youngest of Broos’s Bafana side that beat Ghana 1-0. He played the full 90 minutes.
After playing to a 0-0 draw in the first match away to Zimbabwe, Bafana find themselves on top of Group G after their surprise victory against a Ghanaian side they last beat in February 2000 in a competitive competition. ..
