Bafana Don't Disappoint In Friendly Matches

Bafana Bafana's victory over Egypt on Tuesday night should not be a surprise for South Africans, because it is known that every time they play friendly matches, their chances of winning are higher than in competitive games.

If one can remember well, the same Bafana once defeated World Cup winners, Spain, so why should we be impressed with the fluke victory over Egypt? To be honest, judging or deciding one's future with a friendly match is just a Joke.

How can a 64th ranked team fail beat a 104th ranked side and, a week later, the same team 64th ranked team go on to defeat a 42nd ranked team in a friendly match? who should be blamed? There is the coach, but who is really the obstacle here? The players need differentiate between important matches and friendly matches.

If SAFA is to decide the future of Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba, they must make a fair decision that can help future of our national soccer team, not judging this from a friendly game.

Having said that, are you pleased with Bafana’s victory over Egypt, and do you think they've improved? Lastly, do you think Shakes should be shown the Exit door?
