Bradley Grobler back with Bafana Bafana for World Cup qualifiers

Bradley Grobler back with Bafana Bafana for World Cup qualifiers”

Before being sacked as the Bafana coach in December a year ago, Mashaba earned four points for the national team on their journey towards World Cup qualification in Russian Federation after getting a point against Burkina Faso following a 1-1 draw away from home and a 2-1 victory against a strong Senegalese side at the Peter Mokaba Stadium. "Now he is a coach and he deserves another chance at Bafana Bafana", Mashaba concluded.

South Africa continue their World Cup qualifying campaign away to the islanders on Friday, before resuming hostilities in the return fixture in Durban four days later. Senegal are third with three points. It would not be an impossible mission, but a hugely hard one.

The former Bafana mentor wished the team well for this clash and he believes the team can do well at the World Cup if they manage to qualify. Nothing has changed with regards to my passion and love for South Africa.

The local contingent had endured a 12-hour long, but reasonably comfortable, charter flight from Johannesburg to Praia, while their European counterparts in Keagan Dolly, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Bongani Zungu, Andile Jali, Thulani Serero and Kermit Erasmus met them at the Pestana Tropico Hotel.

And Tokelo Rantie remains a potent weapon with his pace.

Baxter will now squeeze in just two training sessions at the Estadio Nacional, the match venue, which is an artificial pitch before the all-important game.

Safa also extended an invitation to Sports and Recreation Minister Thulas Nxesi.

It does have a "D-Day" feel to it, that all things are possible in victory, or that even an away draw will feel like a defeat knowing the challenges that are to come.
