Bafana suffered a 2-1 loss to Cape Verde in the first leg of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, moving to third in the group standings.

However, following Senegal’s draw to Burkina Faso, there is still everything to play for in Bafana’s upcoming second leg clash against Cape Verde.

Bafana will host Cape Verde at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban this evening, where Head Coach Stuart Baxter’s side will look for no less than a win in the encounter.

Speaking to the South African Football Association’s official website, Hlatshwayo said, “Everything is possible in football. We have ourselves to blame for what happened in Praia; we made life difficult for ourselves by making avoidable human errors but that is football. Had we won that match, we could have taken total grip of the Group.”

“It has been long since we last qualified for the FIFA World Cup and if we do so, it will give a nation a massive lift,” he added.

You are right Tyson, you are a disgrace to the country and you should be ashame of yourselves as players. I am so nor sure if you were representing the country or your families. Danny Jordan must also take the blame. It is always the case where you manage football and you have never play the game before.
