IN OUR LAST reportage, we mentioned the word ‘complacency’ in a World Cup 2018 Qualifier between Bafana Bafana and Cape Verde.
Yes, the game we went on to lose dismally 2-1.
Unfortunately, that word came back to haunt us as players’ went from heroes in the first half to ‘sheroes’ if such a superlative exist.
Tonight at Moses Mabhida Stadium, Bafana players’ are expected to avenge and fight until bitter end to win, because either a draw or lose, will disqualify us a chance to book a ticket to Russia next year. Technically….
Excuses were made that the turf was not conducive for football, late arrival led to fatigue and formation wasn’t well executed. Really?
If coach Stuart Baxter and his technical team are to be taken serious and show they deserve to be at the helm of coaching Bafana, tonight would be a litmus test. Finish & klaar!
Yes, Eric Mathoho, the defender, cost us dearly and should face disciplinary hearing. It can’t be a senior member of both Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana collects two red-cards in a space of a week.
That smacks of ill-discipline. What role is he teaching our young boys and girls?
Having said that Baxter has to regroup and make sure his troops will pounce on the ‘no-hopers’ Verde for disrespecting us. Stru!
We can’t afford to be sore-losers in this dying-age and miss out catching a plane to a ‘Vodka World’ after 16 years’.
Or else something will hit the fan…
