    most south African coaches have failed to realise that football is not played on d pages of newspapers but on d pitch. prior to d match played in polokwane d batsesana coach was saying how d team was going to defeat the falconer but it turned out to b d reverse. in d presence of their vociferous crowd they were not only beaten but embarrassed. when d coach was asked to comment on d match. as usual she said after d Nigerians scored their two goals they resorted playing long balls. winning Nigeria in all cadre of football competition has been an obsession for South Africa. just last year when they came to Nigeria and defeated super eagles d they were jubilating as if they have won d fifa world cup. since their defeat of Nigeria they have not won any significant match and their egocentric coach have not spoken much since then as his job is on d line. South Africa should realise that most of their players are below average players who are overrated by d press in the country. u cannot have players in d psl and claim u have talent. if they are that good where are they in d elite leagues competing wit d best in d world. d psl in South Africa is overrated with below average players that’s why d players need to go out and test their mettle outside so d experience garnered will rub positively on the national team
