Bafana-bafana has been inconsistent has been the main reason why we failed to qualify for gabon 2017africa cup of nations.another reason is our players selection,we keep on changing our team over and over again.we always see new faces in the national team in every match.
This's something never happened during clive barkers team.even a small boy from the township could select the starting line up from barkers squad.because he kept the same team together for a longtime and the knew and understand each other very well.the results were there to be witnessed during 1996 afcon cup thriumnph in our home soil.
Even jomo sono did the same as clive barker during 1997/1998 era as bafana-bafana coach.he introduced youngsters like benni mcCarthy and aron mokoena from the national youth teams like under20s and under23 teams.the last reason for our downafall is the current coach we having at the moment.stuart baxter is not the right men to lead bafana.once again hen failed to qualify us to the world cup like he did back during 2006 germany world cup.
He ignored our talented under23 youngsters who went to brazil rio olympics.it's only keagan dolly who graduated to the national team set up out of all our boys who went to brazil for olyimpic games.he ignored our under20s boys who recently turned out for the under20 fifa world cup in korea june this year.we have a lot young and talented players that can put our country back where our nation belongs in football world.
We need a local brave coach who's willing to take a risk by giving these youngsters their breakthrough to the national team.a coach that can allow our boys to play football the south african way.we should adopt our mzansi diski style of play into all our national teams and be proud of it.
