In this week’s edition of Soccer-Laduma, issue 855, we rate the Bafana Bafana players’ performances following the 3-1 loss against The Super Eagles of Nigeria in the Chan 2014 tournament.
Coach Gordon Igesund looked to have fielded a well-balanced team, but unfortunately his players were no match to Stephen Keshi's young side.
With three teams all standing a chance of advancing to the knockout stages, all eyes were on this tie to see which side will come out tops, and as a result, Soccer-Laduma’s weekly ‘Team of the Week’ does not feature in this week’s edition, and has been substituted with the Bafana Bafana player ratings.
