South Africa suffered a 2-0 loss to Senegal on Friday in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter, November 10, demolishing their dream of taking part in the prestigious tournament in Russia next year.

Speaking to the South African Football Association’s official website, head coach Baxter revealed that failing to take chances is both a national and domestic problem in South Africa. 

“We had Senegal against the ropes for most of the first half but failed to take our chances,” the Englishman revealed on SAFA’s official website. 

“This has been our constant problem whether in the domestic league or national level – failure to convert numerous scoring chances; and in most cases you will be made to pay for it. 

“But such progression is at times hampered by (the) failure to get results on the field of play on (a) consistent basis; because winning games are what qualifies you for tournaments,” he added.

Bafana will lock horns with Senegal in Dakar today, November 14, in their last fixture of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Africa qualifying campaign.
