"Now we go for a warm-up, knowing the match is kicking off at 3pm, suddenly you're told, hold on, there's potential for a stampede outside. Why didn't we learn from the World Cup?"
Mosimane also added that match commissioners had become even more confused of late regarding protocol such as which dugouts teams have to occupy on matchday, whereas during the World Cup these were clearly marked.
"But what surprises me even more is that these match commissioners deny us the chance to water the grass before kickoff. Why? This helps the flow of play. It was done during the World Cup, it's done in big leagues. But clearly our match commissioners don't know this," he said.
Mosimane, nevertheless, remains proud to have been on the bench alongside Parreira as the tournament kicked off at Soccer City, with Bafana holding Mexico to a 1-1 draw after a Siphiwe Tshabalala scorcher was cancelled out by Rafael Marquez.
"It was an incredible experience," he recalled. "Many of us couldn't sleep the night before."
His role as Parreira's second assistant - along with Jairo Leal - was to scout Bafana's opposition. "It was difficult to get specific details about Mexico because they had used 35 players in the months before our match. But we knew that the big ones - Marquez, (Ricardo) Osorio, Carlos Vela, Giovanni dos Santos - would all start.
"We were nervous at the start of the match, but settled in later. Once Shabba scored, we were in control. We were unfortunate to concede with 12 minutes to go."
Bafana went on to lose the next match, against Uruguay, but redeemed themselves with a 2-1 win over France in the final pool match, albeit that was still not enough to send them through to the knockout phase.
"We gave a good account of ourselves," Mosimane said.
