“Going to Afcon with Mobbie as our right back” Bafana fans react

Bafana Bafana supporters displayed their frustration following the team’s lackluster draw against Eswatini on Friday evening.

Eswatini, ranked 144th in the FIFA rankings, managed to hold South Africa to a 0-0 draw at the FNB Stadium.

Fans have a reason to be angry especially given that the team will play in next year’s African Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast.

Bafana fail to beat Eswatini

Hugo Broos’ charges have been drawn with Tunisia, Mali, and neighbours Nambia in their Afcon group.

Broos said the upcoming friendlies would be used to gauge his side’s readiness ahead of next year’s continental showpiece. Clearly it seems like Bafana are not ready to compete with the likes of Senegal and Nigeria.

Last month, they were held by Nambia before scrapping to a 2-1 win over DR Congo.

Broos’ charges are unbeaten in 15 games but are likely to drop in the rankings as they keep drawing games they should be winning.

After the match, many fans took to X, formely known as Twitter, to express their anger and disappointment in the team.

“Going to Afcon with Mobbie as our right back, yhooo. We don’t have, our midfielders are failing to open small countries like Swaziland and Namibia,” tweeted @MabhutiWayne.

“The coach says he doesn’t understand why we played like this he doesn’t know what’s happening and he doesn’t understand. Who must understand?” said @iamdjmfundisi.

Bafana lacks quality to compete with the top African-ranked sides but teams like Eswatinit should be trashed 4-0 even if Nyiko Mobbie is playing at right-back.
