Will The Poor Treatment Of Our Teams In Africa Ever End?

The good feeling in the South African football fraternity is at its highest at present, especially in the Mamelodi Sundowns camp. It is pleasing to finally witness another local team dominate the continent after 21 years, since Orlando Pirates lifted the CAF Champions League trophy. However, playing in Africa continues to be a daunting task...

We have heard numerous stories in the past of how teams suffered as they travelled to other African countries. From the laser treatment on the field of play to the behind-the-scenes tactics designed to unsettle opposition teams, it requires much mental fortitude.

Sundowns travelled to Egypt for the second leg of the CAF Champions League final and were greeted by missiles on Sunday evening. The sounds of fireworks rung in the stadium and flares were lit up. However, it was amazing to see how the Downs players took all of this seemingly in their stride. Their mental strength proved too strong.

This, however, does raise a few questions... What are the football federations is doing to rectify these instances, and will anything ever be done about them?

What do you think of the circumstances that our teams have to face when they play in Africa?
