So Furman suspended,Rama injured.They are not left out,theres nothing to explain..As for others the reasons behind them being snubbed makes no sense because they were called before under the same circumstances.

I can agree with this justification only in the case of Mphahlele, Furman, Erasmus but I disagree with the others especially Rantie who always carry the hopes of South Africans who support Bafana, I hope our coach can reconsider his decision before the day he start with his camp

don't make sense, u keep leaving Gordinho who is performaing very well at chiefs, he is the best in the country to match the international and local standard.as for Rantie the only player who is been scoring and u left him out, common sense should prevail.

What is killing South African football is the fact that we the fans,knows football to the point where we think we can do more than what the coaches can do in regard to the selection of players, style of play and substitution....

Organisations thrive on good leadership...Shakes was doing well with Bafana until SAFA leadership took a questionable decision...we must now suffer the consequences of a bad decision.

How many game Mathoho played from that 4 chiefs played,I was one of those who celebrated when we beat Nigeria i said Baxter is a good choice that will take us to Russia but I can see he like to use the players that he coached before not by form as he claim,my question to Baxter is can you take us to Russia
