Bafana Bafana continued their quest for 2022 AFCON qualification with the first of their double-header against São Tomé and Príncipe, earning a 2-0 win in a tough fixture. Supporters weren’t happy with the display and questioned Coach Molefi Ntseki’s squad selection, with Rangers star Bongani Zungu having started on the bench and Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Lebogang Manyama starting as a forward. South Africa managed to grab the victory with Anderlecht star Percy Tau converting from the spot, and Zungu coming off the bench to secure victory with a second half header.
In the latest episode of the SL Podcast’s “Fan Reaction Show”, supporters express their continued frustrations with the national team, with many raising questions as to how the side would perform against stronger opposition like Ghana. A large amount of criticism was placed on Ntseki, with fans already calling for him to be replaced, despite having only been in charge for just over a year. Bafana Bafana hold second position in Group C of the AFCON qualifiers, but Ntseki will be hoping to confirm qualification as soon as possible to relieve pressure from fans before the competition in January 2022.
