Bafana’s road to Rus­sia 2018

Grocott's Mail - - YOUR SAY -

Keep­ing your hopes high for Bafana Bafana is heart­break­ing, as the team is full of sur­prises.

Just when all hope is gone, boom! Bafana win with fly­ing colours. It’s so un­be­liev­able it even feels like match-fix­ing.

The spec­u­la­tion was that Bafana Bafana had to win at least two and draw one on their three re­main­ing games, with the other teams hav­ing to draw or lose. The boys duly won last week­end, restor­ing some faith in the squad.

How­ever, not ev­ery­thing went as hoped for, as Sene­gal also won over the week­end, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to rely on a draw against their squad.

Should we have kept the six points against An­gola vic­tory, we would have al­ready booked our place in the 2018 World Cup in Rus­sia. Well, An­gola was dis­qual­i­fied and all our points went down the drain.

As we have done with our can­celled match, we now need to beat Sene­gal both home and away, which will see us clos­ing the group on po­si­tion with 10 points against Sene­gal’s eight points.

I be­lieve we can, as we all see that Mzansi’s Num­ber One goal­keeper is on top form. That would be Kaizer Chiefs’ ever green Itume­leng Khune.

Mamelodi Sun­downs play­ers might have scored the three goals over the week­end, but that's just that, they are no he­roes, chill. Let us just wait for the Chiefs’ play­ers to bail out Bafana Bafana! •Azlanis­theOn­lineMe­dia Pro­duc­er­atGro­cott'sMail
