SA soccer is at the crossroads and as a lover of soccer I wish our soccer bosses take the right path to lead us out of African soccer dwarfdom if you like.

 At a time when players of our beloved Bafana were overlooked for the African best XI,there seems to be no better reality check than this.We are giants in Africa no more,and as long as we don't export players to the best leagues in Europe where they start week in and week out and we fail to create the elusive reserve league and competitive youth structures,we going nowhere slowly.

And while its going well with our domestic league in terms of sponsorship deals etc you wonder who will drive change in oursoccer to get us to a point where small teams like eg. Lesotho know they don't have a chance against us.
