Football is now an open international sport .We hve qoutas to control the number of foreigners in our teams , bringing tht xtra foreign quartet brings competition to our game and sharing of ideas nd different styles .If they are good let them come for xtra xcitement. Unless Carder305 u want local players for our league only.We enjoy European football more because they draw the best players from all over the world and it makes the whole game more enjoyable

I didn't like the way the media handled the cosafa deal. It was final in mzansi but the local news ignored all the good football dished by the Worriors. Be jealous but the talent will never change

South Africa is jealous of Zimbabwe success. When they played yesterday every was on media and all the news papers. Why jealous of your neighbours. Jealous will never change anything. I am not from Zimbabwe but now on local news there is nothing like cosafa news. Shame on our media who can run for useless things
