'Luck Was Just Not On Our Side'

Having played to a goalless draw against Cameroon last night, Bafana Bafana may as well kiss their qualification ambitions goodbye as they remain in third spot, four points behind second-placed Mauritania and one more point from leaders Cameroon.

With only two fixtures remaining, Bafana will rely heavily on other results to go their way in order to qualify for the Africa Cup Of Nations in Gabon next year, but Bafana and Celtic supporter Mamello Mhaka insists that fellow South Africans should just make peace with the fact that the team won't feature in next year's tournament.

"I don't think we'll qualify. A win would have kept our hopes alive, but then now, with only two matches to play, we won't make it." She said.

"The players were willing to win. I won't blame them; luck was just not on our side."

Reflecting on last night's match, where Bafana dominated the 'Indomitable Lions' in almost every aspect of the game but failed to score, this is what she had to say:

"It's an everyday thing. Bafana always perform well, but then they don't score the necessary goals."

"When they eventually score, they also let in goals. We were supposed to win last night, but then they missed too many chances."

Bafana's next qualification fixture will be against Gabon in June and their last fixture will be against Mauritania on September 2, and they will be hoping to get their first victory in the group against the team that beat them by three goals to one last year.

What do you think has been Bafana's biggest downfall? Do you think they still stand a chance to qualify for AFCON 2017? Share your thoughts below.
