Bafana End WC Qualifying Campaign With Defeat

2018 World Cup Qualifier Report: Senegal v South Africa 14 November 2017

By Soccer Laduma - Nov 14, 2017 10:27 PM

2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier 

Result: Senegal 2-1 Bafana Bafana

Date: 14 November 2017 

Venue: Stade Leopold Senghor 

Goals from Opa Nguette and Kara Mbodji secured maximum points for Senegal, as Bafana Bafana went down 2-1 away from home in their final 2018 World Cup qualifier.

South Africa had the first opportunity in the 10th minute. A long free-kick into the opposition box was headed across goal by Clayton Daniels and Morgan Gould’s volley went over the bar.   

After 26 minutes, Percy Tau was brought down in the box and appealed for a penalty but the referee waved play-on.

Bafana should have taken the lead in the 37th minute, when Tau laid the ball off for Sibusiso Vilakazi, who had the goal at his mercy but shot straight to goalkeeper Alfred Gomis, who also saved Keagan Dolly’s tame attempt from the rebound.

Despite being in control of possession, Senegal failed to test Bafana shot-stopper Itumeleng Khune, as the teams went into the break tied at 0-0. 

The Senegalese broke the deadlock in the 55th minute, after Khune was caught off his line. Opa Nguette chipped the ball into the back of the net from 25-yards out, to give his side a 1-0 lead.

After 63 minutes, Tau played Themba Zwane through on goal and the winger was fouled in the box and a penalty was awarded. Zwane stepped up took the penalty but, failed to hit the target as Senegal remained in the lead.

A minute later, Tau found the back of the net after a quick counter-attack saw the forward through on goal and he made no mistake as his finish leveled the scores a 1-1.

Senegal almost regained the lead in the 74th minute from a corner as Kara Mbodji towered over the Bafana defence, only to see his header crash against the crossbar.   

Mbodji was not to be denied for a second time as he rose highest again and headed past Khune, to see Senegal score in the final minute of the game and sealed maximum points for his team at the final whistle.

Here's how they lined up: 

Senegal: Gomis, Kouyate, Mbodji, Gueye, Sow, Niang (Ciss 73’), Nguette, Sabaly, A. Ndiaye (Diousse 88’), P. Ndiaye (Ndoye 80’), Wague

 

Bafana: Khune, Mkhize, Daniels, Gould, Hlanti, Furman, Zungu, Zwane (Jali 71’), Dolly, Tau, Vilakazi (Manyama 84’).

This is such an embarassment to the country. I can't believe they did it again. How can they do this?

It will be difficult for South Africa to beat west and north African countries because of the following: They are fast, hard tacklers and use their body strength and they have pace than us. Being a good soccer player in South Africa does mean you can win easily in the north and west Africa unless we consider this points. The match yesterday and previous ones are witnesses to this. The fact that we are stars at home is we are playing the same soccer style and have similar body strength. SAFA must start to look at this points if we have to succeed in the future International showdown. If you watched Percy Tau yesterday you could see that he is talented and tactical but lacks the strength these guys [Senegal] are having. If he was stronger like them, he would have scored goals seeing the chances he had.

We need to get rid of the coach and reshuffle the defence and go back to the basic. we conceded very poor goals because our defence don't know how to press the opponent, even the goal from the corner no one was picking up the opponent. as for scoring goals we play the best football in the continent but we don't understand Team Work, that is something Pep has instilled in football, if you check the goal that Zwane missed in the first leg he was supposed to pass the ball to Tau or Mkhize on the Right hand side instead he went for Glory.Teamwork is very important and that is something lackig in front of goals.Can someone appoint me for Bafana Job

Now is time to look if we still need the so called experienced guys, is their experience helping us as a country? If not we need to rebuild Bafana with young and talented players and relieve all tried, tested & failed cows, I'm not about their coach

Khune must retire from international football now . I wonder what was Da gama was doing for calling him to be part of our under 23 in Rio . I was very amazed by Da Gama's decision to put Khune between the poles , someone who failed in all junior levels when he was still young an still failing in Bafana-Bafana after of a ten years experience in senior national team . Our under 23 players never recovered from what happened in Rio , even Da Gama himself is regretting his decision for putting Mzantsi's Funniest Man between the poles , maybe someone promised him Brown Envelope l

Bafana bagana is d most easiest team anyone can coach.bcs u simply choose players who are on form at the moment.why mele i bafana ibe nama regular players bcs is a national Team? Even NFD PLAYERS N AMATEUR TEAM PLAYER can represent bafana.u dnt need experience.those regula players what did they bring for the nation? Dololoo Safa bafana should apologise to the nation yibo aba greedy. Ramagalela is d man at d moment wat was he supose to do to be selected. Maluleka is a good distributor bt overlooked. So people should stop uku thuka ama player inkinga baya khohliswa ukuthi nguwe o best at d moment kant they use you. I love n respect khune bt he was n is used xeim.Sorry man bt know that LOYALTY in Soccer dnt Exist.Big up to Serero for standing his ground.yekani ukuthukana nokuzonda ama player just speak ur mind n leave d guy alone. How will u feel if lento oyenzayo ilethwa kuwe.maybe is Y uhlulekile ukuya even NFD uyathukana Kwaaaaaaa

When our strikers score goals the cameramen show him on the screen celebrating instead of showing the goal-scorer celebrating . If the opposition player score a goal the cameramen show him on the screen shouting at his difenders for letting the player through in the box to score . Khune likes attention like Somizi Mhlongo , wherever there is Somizi you'll see kids who want to see his diva antics

You can blame Baxter all you want, but as things stands the problem lies with the material he have. Phela bafana doesnt hav wow players. Evn MultiChoice chiefs squad can beat Bafana Bafana easily.
