S. Africa Keeper Ronwen Williams Praised for Economy-Saving Performance

South Africa’s goalkeeper, Ronwen Williams, earned high praise from teammate Grant Kekana after a stellar performance against Cape Verde.

Williams’ outstanding saves, including four penalties and a crucial stop in injury time, led to Kekana jokingly suggesting he could be the country’s finance minister.

Kekana highlighted Williams’ world-class skills and credited the team’s analysts for their preparation.

Williams, modestly, focused on teamwork and praised his colleagues for their defensive efforts throughout the tournament.

South Africa’s unexpected success under coach Hugo Broos has brought them to the semifinals, defying expectations. Cape Verde’s midfielder, Ryan Mendes, expressed disappointment but also optimism, aiming for World Cup qualification and reflecting on their achievement at the tournament.
