#We Want Lars #We Want Goals

South Africa has, for long, been starved of a prolific goalscorer. Gone are the days of Benni McCarthy, Shaun Bartlett, and Mark Williams. However, it seems a saviour has appeared out the blue, in the form of a Dutch second division footballer, who has a South African father, named Lars Veldwijk. He wants to play for Bafana Bafana, but does Bafana Bafana want him?

Many supporters are scratching their head in bewilderment at the lack of communication between SAFA and the "Dutch goal machine". There seems to be a simple problem/solution here. The scenario is this: The South African national football team does not score enough goals; there is a player in Holland who scores lots of goals, has a South African father and has expressed a desire to play for Mzansi, so why not give him a call-up?

"You know who Mashaba will call (Gabuza)." – Thokozani37

"SAFA should get their priorities straight. #We want Lars #We want goals." – gmoselana

"He is going and scoring, which is exactly what we need as a country. So, I say, SAFA and Shakes, pull up your socks and get the young lad." – Papa ssss

"The nation is interested in the goalscoring machine. Who is SAFA? Bafana is the national team." – Tjitjotja

It is, however, important to remember that there are probably a number of complicated reasons as to why he has not yet received a call-up. There is surely much red tape to navigate and many contracts to sign, etc.

Nonetheless, South Africans are enthralled at the idea of having a goalscoring machine in our national colours, and even when it is unfair, we need to apply pressure on football authorities so that they can hopefully speed up the processes.

Do you think Veldwijk can be the answer to Bafana's scoring problems?
