They say if you want to stand the test of time, compete against the best. The match against Uganda yesterday was like setting up a fight between a leopard and a deer and yet the deer still managed to land 2 heavy blows against the leopards regardless of the Leopard's victory at the end. Remember you can't practice grade 9 mathematics while you will be examined on grade 12 mathematics.
The South African national team has intricate issues to solve about the team's performance and style of play and to know if they are getting their solutions right, it's more worthy to compete against the big boys not Uganda. South Africa has a better team than the Ugandan national team.
This young boys will grow faster if they look for real opposition like Nigeria, Algeria, Morocco, Cameroon, Senegal and Egypt. Yesterday, they fought hard but these thing of allowing opposition team to score first doesn't make any sense and doesn't help at all because psychologically, we are strong.
Initially, we can comfortably go again st any team in the world and be confident of victory. We had a future when Bennie and Nomvethe were beating the likes of Brazil in Olympics. That squad disappeared in thin air without winning any major silverware. Same Brazil that we beat, went on to win the world cup. The future now are the Ama2000s, Evidence Makgopa and Hlongwane.
