FEVER PITCH

DRUM - - Ed's Note -

As we’ve no­ticed in re­cent years our na­tional soc­cer team, Bafana Bafana, is shame­ful. They al­ways dis­ap­point when they’re sup­posed to de­liver, but when it doesn’t count they win (Back to ba­sics, boys, 19 Oc­to­ber).

Their win against Burk­ina Faso shows that this team has ca­pac­ity but they’re lack­ing that killer in­stinct and ded­i­ca­tion. It’s very late for them now to pick them- selves up and qual­ify to play in the 2018 Fifa World Cup.

If you want to save your­self heartache and dis­ap­point­ment, don’t raise your hopes for Bafana Bafana mak­ing it – af­ter all, how do you ex­plain los­ing twice to a coun­try like Cape Verde that doesn’t even have a pro­fes­sional soc­cer team? MUSA DLAMINI, POLOK­WANE
