      what big hiding? Do you know any team that have given SA soccer a big hiding? The big teams we played with last was Brazil, Spain and France go check the score. The only problem is that the guys cannot win. People just look at names and fail to look at details. Great teams and players are not made in a single match, their career is based on a period of consistency.

      they just want to show to big the gap between real soccer players (brazil) and wannabe soccer players (banana) is.

    A baptism of fire for Gordon, hope he selects the best squad based on form. We can only learn and prepare for AFCON 2012 by playing against the best.
