Soccer is not a sissy sport and many will agree with me when I say this because it was once said that "talent alone is not enough".
Coach Kompela gave Wiseman Meyiwa a chance yesterday against tough opponents Cape town city and the young lad fought hard against top players and made life difficult for the likes of Mpho Matsi and Ayanda Patosi.
Fans around Mzansi were mesmerized by his performance some were shocked while some couldn't believe a 17 year old can do what Meyiwa did, which had me wondering; if we don't believe in our youngsters who will?
Teams always promote players but later loan them to lower leagues and then go outside Mzansi to get players and that is not helping our national team in anyway, we have to start giving our young ones a chance, let's play them.
We have top coaches who are able to spot talent and we've seen players like Steven Pienaar representing our country very well in Europe and we all know he started at very young age, so let's play these boys and believe in them.
