Good luck, Bafana Bafana.

I think the players are now starting to understand Gordon Igesund's tactics and philosophy. He trusts the entire squad and the players have seized the chance he has given them.

However, I'm still critical of how we play.

At times we tend to be disjointed and can't even string together decent passes.

This is due to certain players wanting to do it all on their own.

We are a bit thin in the middle, so bringing in Reneilwe Letsholonyane or Oupa Manyisa would boost both Bafana's defence and attack.

There are still a lot of gaps that we need to close if we progress further in the competition. Our back line needs to be airtight, and our attackers need to convert the chances they get.

How about putting Siyabonga Sangweni upfront as our striker? He will compete f or every aerial ball and he's got an eye for goals.
