South Africa should have woken up celebrating today. However, it seems the country is still not convinced. Bafana Bafana overcome African powerhouses Egypt 1-0 in the Orlando Stadium, however, supporters have seen this as too little too late and nothing to celebrate.
There is a common trend in South Africa, whereby the national team struggles to win in competitive games but can easily take friendlies. Furthermore, we tend to struggle against smaller teams and beat stronger ones.
“mxm They Always Win Friendlies and Fail to win when It matters The most, more like England who choke in competitions but can wallop You in friendly games, this is the habit our national team has adapt and this SAFA thing is useless, I wonder who Was In charge when we Won 96 AfCON. This is disappointing and the problem's not the coach, how many times have we changed coaches and what results did we get? Mashaba had a wonderful sublime journey and it ends here but let me be optimistic with you, the next coach will be given same treatment until we get ranked 150 something, fire all those people who are killing our football at the top, this Is becoming a nuisance and we fail to evoke positive results in official games yet we should get delighted by this tawdry victory? we are not blind, We beat Spain, Costa Rica, and Senegal but we failed to beat those fishermen and couldn't pass through them here at home, what a disgrace. Withdraw all downs players we have serious games to play nx.” – d.day
It doesn’t seem like Coach Shakes Mashaba will be around for much longer unless things improve drastically, even a win last night was not enough to convice the public that he should avoid the axe, but whether that will fix the problem or not remains to be seen.
Hou vas South Africa, the dawn comes after the dark of night.
Is it time to change coaches?
