thumbnail Hello,

The former assistant to Pitso Mosimane is upset following Bafana Bafana's draw away to the Zebras on Saturday

South Africa interim coach Steve Komphela is livid after the team drew yet another match.

Bafana have now gone eight matches without a win after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Botswana in a World Cup 2014 qualifier played in Gaborone on Saturday afternoon.

"We're not pleased. We are not happy. The nation deserves better and we have to acknowledge that. It is putting too much strain and pressure on the players, but we got to carry it," he said at a press conference.

"I don't believe there is a rule in football that you have to draw permanently, neither would you win permanently nor lose permanently. This has to change. We don't know when it would change, but we have to go out and put our heads up. We cannot keep on waiting, because next time becomes next time and it gets too late. Nobody wants to wait," Komphela acknowledged.

Bafana last won an official match in August last year when they beat Burkina Faso 3-0 in an international friendly and Komphela says the winless streak has gone for far too long.

"This has been happening since August; when is it gonna change? Nothing lasts forever, this must change," Komphela insisted.
