Should We Be Worried About The Bafana Drama? - Reader’s Voice
The kick off for Bafana's crucial World Cup qualifiers against Senegal is rapidly drawing closer. However our camp has not been without drama since the beginning of the preparations.
It started with the terrible incident that left the country's first choice goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune injured during his team’s clash in TKO against Chippa United. It remains to be seen if the nation’s best shot-stopper will be available for the must-win match against the Lions of Teranga.
Secondly, the skipper, Thulani Hlatshwayo was reported to be nursing a minor injury which might see him starting from the bench on Friday unless he recovers in time.
On top of that, Hlompho Kekani was released for family responsibilities after the tragic death of his mother in law. The once Puska Award nominee, who is in good form lately, left a gab that saw his club teammate Tiyani Mabunda receiving a call-up to the national team setup.
As if that was not enough, Thulani Serero was reported to have refused to join the camp unless he is guaranteed game-time.
The cream of the nation, as he is affectionately known, is not new to these kind of tantrums but the big question is, where does all this drama leave us as South Africans?
Do we still stand a chance of booking a ticket to Russia or should we expect the worst?
