Da Gama: Every Team Wants To Beat Bafana

Bafana Bafana assistant coach, Owen Da Gama, believes that every team in Africa aspires to beat Bafana Bafana so that they can impress PSL clubs and get a chance to play in “the best run league on the continent”.

SAFA To Decide On Shakes After Egypt Clash?

In response to South Africa’s win over Egypt in the Nelson Mandela Challenge last week, Da Gama has explained that one of the factors that makes life difficult for the South African national team is that players from other countries want to prove that they are the best by beating Bafana Bafana.

“I can tell you now that the Egyptians (were the same),” he told Soccer Laduma. “I’ve got a friend who’s a part of the Egyptian team. They wanted to beat us so much to show that they are the number one force in Africa. So everybody wants to beat South Africa and these are the dynamics that you’ve got to understand.”

Da Gama went on to say that it is an added incentive for players to perform well when playing against Bafana, because it provides them with the opportunity to attract attention from PSL clubs.

“Everyone wants to beat South Africa, because this is the best run league on the continent and a lot of players might want to make a name for themselves and to get courted by South African teams to come and play here,” he concluded.
