National teams in decline

I, and I believe a host of other South Africans, have observed a steep decline in the quality of soccer played by our national squads at all levels.

The two 3-1 defeats at the weekend are not a coincidence, but are really a manifestation of rigor mortis setting in in our beloved game. It is not necessary to commission a study into this state of affairs.

How do you account for the squad selected by Parreira? He hardly knows our players!

For example, why did he select Cyril Nzama ahead of Vuyo Mere, who has more pace, youth and adequate experience? Just one example.

What the hell is going on there? As for the Under-23 team, the least said, the better.

Their consolation is that the country does not have to fork out millions per month to a foreigner. But their failure still rankles.

Safa, please wake up! Relieve Steve Komphela of his job and pay off the rest of Parreira's contract.

You can afford it if one considers the huge bonuses you guys regularly pay yourselves.
