Sean: What Concerns Me About Bafana...

With the International break almost over, the world cup qualification is just about finished which sees 5 very strong African teams heading to Qatar. The regular European and South American teams will also feature. During this international football break, Bafana Bafana traveled to France to play the world champions in an international friendly. 65 places separated these two teams on the official FIFA rankings and ‘Le Bleus’ made sure they meant business. Unfortunately, there was a clear difference in skill level between the two teams; Bafana captain Ronwen Williams made many outstanding saves, but 5 goals were still conceded. One thing that stood out was the fact that no matter what the scoreline was, Bafana still tried to stick to their game plan. Although a few positives could be taken from the match, questions about Bafana and concerns still remain.

Kurt provides an in-depth review of the latest 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers and who will be heading to Qatar.
