Should Bafana revolve around ‘Cream’?

The beautiful game has changed immensely, so much that the goal scoring department itself is dominated by midfielders, furthermore even the latest world eleven doesn’t have a natural striker, a Suarez.

They say use what you have and South African football evidently lacks quality strikers and are rather blessed in the midfield position. Instead of playing twin strikers, should Shakes look to his midfielders for goals? Mashaba’s men are set face Cameroon at the Moses Mabhida Stadium, and ‘Cream’ makes his return into the starting eleven. Like Neymar is to Brazil, Messi is to Argentina, could Thulani Serero be utilised as Bafana’s main man?

The 25-year old is undoubtedly South Africa’s best attacking midfielder, with magical quick feet that leave defenders puzzled. One of a few South Africans who have scored against Barcelona, the midfielder hasn’t been at his best of late, having been played out of position at Ajax.

Overall Bafana should focus on utilising CAM/second strikers more than natural strikers that we don’t have, other potential attacking midfielders include Sibusiso Vilakazi and the emerging Menzi Masuku.

Having said that, should Bafana adapt to the modern football style?
