With just a couple of days until the FIFA World Cup in Brazil, there seems to be a missing element to the World Cup build-up amongst the local fans – the hype which could of been there had our boys qualified.
The absence of Bafana Bafana at the biggest stage of football is saddening considering that our league is amongst the top leagues in the world .The last time Bafana Bafana qualified for a World Cup was in 2002, and drastic measures should be taken to ensure that we qualify for the 2018 event.
There's a huge void left within South African fans because the preceding tournament was hosted on home soil, where the atmosphere was electrifying in the countdown to the opening ceremony, but this time around our beloved team is not part of the tournament.
South Africa needs to qualify for the next World Cup. The fans deserve more than to be neutrals.
