Johannesburg - Nearly two thirds of South Africa's soccer fans believe that Pitso Mosimane's axing as Bafana Bafana coach was a step in the right direction.

This is according to a statement released by Pondering Panda, a consumer insights company that surveyed 1 193 men nationwide over the age of 18.
