"What's the aim of it all?" They should give up the game. They had already been defeated. Mxm."
Andile Shazii expressed his thoughts as follows:

Khanyisani Nkwanyana expressed his thoughts as follows:
"We'll get smashed even if France decides to play with their D squad!"
Dineo Sekgoro expressed his thoughts as follows:
"Why, Bafana, Mara?" The gentlemen are overconfident. A friendly match between South Africa and Swallows FC would have been ideal. Mbape and Benzema alone are capable of shattering the team's confidence.
Petrus Petrus expressed himself as follows:
"Bafana Bafana should retire from football and devote their time to amapiano music.
Geswhin Molobela expressed his thoughts as follows:
"We are all aware of the outcome. By the way, Mvala vs Pogba, Jali vs Kante, Blom vs Griezmann, and Big Benzema vs Njabulo Ngcobo are all matches I'd like to see!"
Bonang Matheba regrets the lack of Bafana Bafana at AFCON 2021.
