Bafana support diminishing

2010-06-18 07:25
Dear Editor,

I am not keen to soccer but I decided to write article. What has gone wrong now? After a very promising game against Mexico. I think the point of departure will be to say soccer is not predictable. Indeed Bafana Bafana has play well against the Mexican even though it was a 1-1 draw. I believe that every South African is proud of Bafana Bafana.

Every South African can agree with me that Bafana Bafana’s game against Uruguay was very important for South Africa to proceed to the second stage of the World Cup. However, what I saw in the game against Uruguay was a different Bafana Bafana but the same Bafana Bafana. The performance of Bafana Bafana against Mexico was totally different to that of Uruguay. Bafana Bafana seemed powerful when they were playing against Mexico.

What is the real problem? Is it Bafana Bafana or South Africa?

I think, Bafana Bafana have played against Uruguay in the best of their abilities, despite disappointing results on not creating opportunity for them to score goals. Uruguay’s defence was very strong. Bafana Bafana were unable to shot in the box.

 Once again, one can agree with me that 3-0 is a huge score. I think the problem is with us the South Africans.

Many people left the stadium before the end of the game, we have expected too much from Bafana Bafana after the Mexican game and undermined the game between France and Uruguay which resulted in a draw. This draw can be viewed as a powerful draw of group A, taking into account the result of Bafana Bafana vs Uruguay game. This can also be viewed as an indication of the results of the game between Bafana Bafana and France.

Fellow South Africans, at this hour of destiny, Carlos Alberto Parreira and Bafana Bafana needs you.

There is no other time to support Bafana Bafana right now. On Tuesday let’s go to the stadium and blow our vuvuzelas in support of Bafana Bafana. We are South Africans for life.

It is such a pity that the effectiveness with which our police force and justice system dealt with dangerous World Cup rogues are restricted to matters FIFA.
That FIFA manages to make the IRB look progressive is a feat in itself and demonstrates the stubborn reluctance of football’s governing body to embrace change, writes one News24 User.
