Where Will The Goals Come From?

The goalscoring problem is ubiquitous in South African football, from the lower divisions right up to the elite league, strikers fail to consistently find the back of the net. And, consequently the national team lacks prolific strikers.

In Bafana Bafana's 24 year existence, only Benni McCarthy has managed to bag a hat-trick in the senior national team colours. This says a lot about the ability or lack thereof of our strikers. With Bafana Bafana taking on Cameroon this weekend, their strike force is powder puff

. The only on-form player, Dino Ndlovu is out injured leaving the benchwarmers at club level, Tokelo Rantie and Thamsanqa Gabuza with the task of scoring goals. Ajax Cape Town striker, Prince Nxumalo, is showing a lot of potential but his lack of international experience could count against him.

So who will get the goals for Bafana Bafana in this do-or-die clash? Perhaps the midfielders will have to come to the party and bail out the usually profligate strikers. With Bafana thin upfront Shakes Mashaba may opt to play one striker in a 4-5-1 formation.

With that said, who you think is capable of getting the goals for Bafana against the indomitable lions of Cameroon?
