Although we did not qualify for the knockout stages of the Afcon, I think our boys played very well, especially against Angola and Senegal.
My worry though is how coach Carlos Alberto Parreira thinks. How can he say that we are building the squad for 2010 with tried-and-tested players such as Benson Mhlongo and Surprise Moriri?
Is he hoping to play them in the 2010 World Cup?
I'm sure that if we included Benedict Vilakazi, Siyabonga Nomvete and Benni MCarthy in the squad, we could have made it to the quarterfinals.
Why was Kagiso Dikgaci only chosen in the game against Senegal? And why was Moneeb Joseph not substituted? He was struggling with an injury while the best keeper, Itumeleng Khune, was sitting on the bench.
Every time we've lost a game since being readmitted to the international arena 15 years ago, we talked about building process. There is no time for building any more. We want results because 2010 is just around the corner.
The less said about "ball boy" or "yes sir" Pitso Mosimane, the better.
