Williams wants to put Brazil nightmare behind him

SuperSport United goalkeeper Ronwen Williams says he wants to put the five goals he conceded against Brazil for Bafana Bafana behind him, and excel in future for the side.

The 25-year-old was in goal for the national team in 2014 when he let in five against Selecao in an international friendly, when Gordon Igesund was still in charge.

Superstar Neymar bagged a hat-trick while Oscar and Fernandinho also got in on the rout. As such, Williams, who has struggled to make his mark in the Bafana set-up since the massacre at FNB Stadium, says he wants to improve in September’s World Cup qualifiers against Cape Verde.

The player is in good form recently and is included in the squad along with fellow keepers Wayne Sandilands and Reyaad Pieterse, as regulars Itumeleng Khune and Darren Keet are out with illness and injury.

The Port Elizabeth-born star told the Sowetan: “I haven’t had the best Bafana career so far, so I would like to turn that around. Hopefully, I can do this for my country.

“This is an opportunity for all three goalkeepers that are there right now, so I just want to do my best if given a chance. I take the positives and negatives from each game. I just want to go out there, forget about the past and focus on the future.”
