With excellent players and coaches, the Tshwane giants Mamelodi Sundowns is a highly strong team that dominates the PSL. The fact that the team consistently wins trophies rather than losing out on them demonstrates how excellent they are.
Unfortunately, their achievement has no benefit for the national squad. The players' poor performance while playing for the national team demonstrates their system-playing abilities and club football adaptability. When Bafana played against Morocco, the man who was just voted as the defender of the season dropped a stinker on the national team, demonstrating just how poorly the players perform when they represent their country.
When Barcelona was dominating the league and the UEFA Champions League, the Spanish national team traveled to South Africa and won the World Cup with a lineup that included numerous Barcelona players. Germany won the World Cup in 2014 when Bayern was destroying teams in the Bundesliga and the UEFA Champions League. France won the 2018 World Cup when PSG was in great form and destroying opponents in the UEFA Champions League. Bafana could not even win the African Cup of Nations till today when Mamelodi Sundowns dominated local opponents and won the CAF Champions League in 2016.
Thembinkosi Lorch, an Orlando Pirates player who had been benched for two straight games that Bafana lost, salvaged the day when South Africa met Egypt in the 2019 African Cup of Nations. In that contest, he was named the man of the match. A team primarily comprised of Kaizer Chiefs players defeated France in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
