Williams On Bafana: We Could Have Used Erasmus

Mark Williams On Bafana: We Could Have Used Erasmus

By Soccer Laduma - Sep 10, 2017 12:04 PM

Bafana Bafana legend, Mark Williams believes that Kermit Erasmus would have given the South African national team the edge that they needed against Cape Verde.

Bafana suffered back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, which has greatly reduced the country’s chances of qualifying for the prestigious competition set to take place in Russia next year.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Williams believes that the Bafana technical team got their team selection wrong on the day and thinks that the Rennes FC striker could have made an impact on the game if he was chosen in the starting line-up.

“We had Kermit Erasmus who obviously wanted to show the people, “listen here, all these problems that I had in the past, I want to show you that I can score” and he doesn’t even get a game. Now, I can understand how he felt because I felt like that many times,” Williams told the Siya crew.

“But, with Kermit’s pace that he has to run around, you need those players to open the defence and he is the only other one that can do it.”

“Me as a legend, I want to forget about those two games, because we are asking now, do we still have the opportunity to go through? I don’t think so, people shouldn’t say that we are depending on this and that club, I don’t think so,” he added.

@majenz But that's exactly what Shakes used to do and many say he is a good coach. I think Bennie must coach BB.

@banned lwandle vs editor, I am not the one to judge, but I sometimes find some of your comments, that of @MIX n MATCH, a self proclaimed prophet, and that of @Vongani!, who claims to be a follower of Jesus Christ, irreconcilable with the Word of God. It becomes even worse when a pastor hurl insults on Sunday.

There is no use to discuss possibilities in an already played game. In law, we call the whole discussion academic because it is impractical and indeed impossible to implement inputs made.
