Can Bafana Bafana beat the odds ? Or the saying Christmas come once in a year will prove true
The international break came through last week, and we saw a number of National teams world wide clash against each other trying their utmost to qualify for the 2018 FiFa World Cup which will be hosted at Russia.
Bafana Bafana had their fair shoot at accumulating points in oder to be at good standing at Group D. They played both away and home against Cape Verde where in both legs they suffered the same fate of a 2-1 defeat.
This was a huge blow, a disappointing results for the every South African who had hopes that perhaps a win was possible. While dealing with such, FiFa added salt on open wounds of South Africa when they announced that Bafana Bafana has to have a replay match with Senegal.
This left all South Africans broken, which saw Bafana Bafana go down in the bottom in group D with only 1 point. Stuart Baxter's side has a mountain to climb, the question in everyone's mind is ,Can Bafana Bafana beat the odds staked against them?
As a South African, I can simply say no, these odds are impossible to beat. Crucify me if you can, but I don't see Bafana Bafana going to Russia. The style of playing has no win whatsoever in it, Baxter is failing us yet again. Bafana Bafana beat Senegal before, the saying Christmas comes once in a year will prove true, this time Senegal will come down guns blazing.
