Will 'Vision 2022' Work Out?

When Shakes Mashaba was inaugurated as the Bafana Bafana head coach, he was given no mandate - unlike his predecessors. The only objective for him was to build a strong team which will peak by the time 2022 comes along.

When introduced to the bench, the Bafana mentor caused a stir with some of his eyebrow-raising selections, and while the squad was relatively young, there is a slight snag to his vision.

With most players selected for AFCON already in their mid-twenties and higher, by the look of things, a number of these players will struggle to make the 2018 squad - let alone 2022. 

So what exactly are we hoping to achieve with this ‘Vision 2022', which Shakes was talking about?

The senior national team is no kindergarten; therefore, development needs to start in the junior national teams and not months before a major tournament.

Results are needed at senior level – something which we are lacking. Bafana needs their best players on the field if they are to harbour ambitions of being mentioned in the same breath as African powerhouses such as Côte d’Ivoire and Ghana.

Personally, it looks like we are far off from Mashaba’s plans of ‘Vision 2022’.  Do you think 'Vision 2022' is on the right track?
