Brutal Honesty As Furman Admits Bafana’s Weakness

Bafana Bafana’s Dean Furman says that the South African national team have been letting the country down for ‘too long’ as they turn their focus to two vital clashes against Seychelles.
 
 
Furman put in a Man of the Match performance on Saturday afternoon as Bafana huffed and puffed against a Libya side that will were happy to go home with a point, and there was a collective sense that it was two points lost for Stuart Baxter’s side as they missed the chance to go top of Group E.
 
South Africa do still have their African Cup of Nations fate in their own hands as they go into the final four clashes, knowing that two victories over Seychelles next month will put them in a good position to qualify for the 2019 edition of the competition, but Furman admits that it’s not been good enough of late.
 
“It’s too long now that we’ve been letting ourselves down, Bafana Bafana down, and the country down by not qualifying for major tournaments, and until we improve on that and take advantage of these kind of games where we should be picking up three points, we’re going to cause ourselves problems going forward.
 
“I think a winning mentality is everything, and we have to approach games as if they’re the AFCON final, because that’s how important they are.”
