SOUTRH African national soccer team fans yesterday took to social media to express their anger over the performance of their team after losing 2-1 to Zambia in an international friendly played at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium.
Coach Molefi Ntseki has been fingered as the major culprit after the team’s stuttering performance following another disastrous display against Namibia on Thursday night where they only milked a draw from the Brave Warriors.
Bafana Bafana had taken the lead in the 66th minute courtesy of a Keagan Dolly’s strike but Zambia got fired up as the game wore on and Zesco’s hitman Kelvin Kampamba justified his presence in the national team with an opener on the 78th minute and before Chaniza Zulu slalomed the winner with only eight minutes to regulation time.
But the fans could not stomach the loss and went to social media to demand for a resurgent South African team capable of giving them results and are already calling for the coach’s head, a year after taking over the mantle.
Ntseki replaced Stuart Baxter. Baxter also only managed to qualify the national team for the 2019 African Nations Cup in Egypt, where they were knocked out of the tournament at the quarter-final stage by Nigeria.
