Shakes' Empty Promises

Bafana Bafana coach, Shakes Mshaba,  has boldy stated that his side will definitely qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup after failing to qualify for the African Cup of Nations.

Listening to Mashaba's comments during the post match interview, you would be forgiven for taking him for a somnambulist. With Bafana failing to book a spot in a continental tournament, the man at the helm of this sinking ship believes they can book a ticket to Russia.

However, that's highly unlikely when players are selected on the basis of match temperament instead of form. The goalscoring problem is known to everyone, so what's gonna change in the World Cup qualifiers? Let's be realistic, our chances of playing in the World Cup are very slim.

Perhaps its time for Mashaba to walk the plank, the coach is seems to have run out ideas. And, he keeps making empty promises.

Do you think we can qualify for the 2018 World Cup?
