Mathoho Set For FIFA Hearing, Could Face Bafana Axe

Bafana's Erick Mathoho Could Face A Further Ban By FIFA

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 21, 2017 09:20 AM
A FIFA hearing will take place next month to determine whether Erick Mathoho will face any further ban following his red card against Cape Verde this month.
 
 
Mathoho was named in Stuart Baxter’s side for the clash with Burkina Faso in a couple of weeks, although that is dependant on what is decided regarding his suspension after his red card has been studied at the hearing.
 
The defender receives an automatic one-game ban for the red after kicking an opponent, though that could be extended due to the fact that his petulant act took place off the field and seemingly with no intention of winning the ball. 
 
 
Stuart Baxter and his side are set to face their Burkinabe counterparts at FNB Stadium on October 7th, and there is also set to be an international friendly taking place, although the Englishman may have to find a replacement for ‘Tower’ depending on what happens when FIFA review the incident.
 
It remains to be seen who Baxter has in mind should Mathoho not be available.

Matoho fully understands the soccer rules, the real moemish here is Baxter, how on earth he selects a suspended player? even if BB could be donated 8 points to what they have currently, i do not see us going to Russia, not with this confused mess?

they can ban mathoho for all they like but we are 100% behind him as a kc and bafana player. fifa and caf have something against south Africa. to count but few, they did not support our bid for the world cup, bafana are treated badly when they play in other parts of the continent, . bafana blamed for an incompetent referee. only a stupid fool that blames a team for the referee who makes wrong decisions. our teams such as pirates, sundowns, chiefs and others are treated shabbily. the recent one, sundowns not given a training pitch this weekend for their champions league game. I think our officials are meek. our players are also weak, other players just harass them even when we play here at home. we have to lodge complains now that the referee's decisions can be changed now or matches can be replayed.

Some of you guys in this blog are just plain ignorant and just comment because Mathoho plays for Chiefs and you hate Chiefs. The truth is FIFA seems to have something against Bafana and the fact that our soccer supremo is useless just makes matters worse. The said incident didn't even injured the mentioned player now why will they want to review the incident? What Ive realized with this blog is that some of the fans here just like to comment in anyway they like without considering fact and make other persons look bad or stupid.
