Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana international, Shaun Bartlett, says that strikers are not scoring as many goals as before because the game has changed tactically.

He told Sport24 that the game is more tactical now which means that strikers have to adapt mentally. 

"The game has more tactical now," Bartlett explained.

”Strikers should get better and have the desire to score goals. 

“But the good thing is that they get the chances and what they need to do is improve their mental preparations ahead of games. 

“If they can do that then they can score and we won't have these goal scoring problems.”
