The South African Football Association (SAFA) and the Minister of Sport, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa are heading for a collision course.
The club versus country is problem is back to haunt South African football again. With only a week before the U23 African Cup of Nations tournament kicks-off in Egypt, SA coach David Notoane is struggling to put out a decent team together.
The first two official matches of Molefi Ntseki as a Bafana Bafana coach will provide him with a true test not only in terms of how difficult the opponents are going to be but also the schedule.
Just after Bafana Bafana had lost their opening African Cup of Nations game against Ivory Coast 1-0 in Cairo, Egypt, Minister of Sports, Arts and Culture Nathi Mthethwa spoke about the Football Indaba that the country needed to have.
There’s no denying that the biggest clash in the African Cup of Nations (AFCON) 2021 Group C qualification group is Bafana Bafana vs the Black Stars of Ghana. Bafana head coach Molefi Ntseki has a long history with this Ghanaian team dating back to the 2009 U20 World Cup in Egypt.
