Strong Bafana


BAFANA Bafana, sporting one of their strongest squads in a long time, dispatched the unheralded Guinea-Bissau 3-1 at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday to hopefully put all the negative publicity surroundin­g their former coach and match-fixing allegation­s behind them.

Nicknamed the Wild Dogs, Guinea-Bissau are ranked 80th in the world, 18 positions below 62nd-ranked Bafana.

Former Orlando Pirates attacker Kermit Erasmus made an emphatic return from the internatio­nal wilderness, scoring from the penalty spot and was heavily involved when Bafana were on offence.

Up next is the lowly 147th-ranked Angola in East London tomorrow night. Let’s hope “The Boys” can continue their upward curve.
