thumbnail Hello,

With less than a week before the 2013 Afcon kicks off, former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya tells that Bafana is still lacking in team chemistry

Former Kaizer Chiefs striker Pollen Ndlanya told South Africa that Saturday’s stalemate against Algeria, did not surprise him as he knew that the boys will draw, due to their problems with scoring.

“I knew before the match that we were going to draw. One can say that we created chances and knocked on their doors, but the reality is that those were not clear chances. Somehow it still seems as if we are depending on luck to play its role,” said Ndlanya.

Though, Igesund did say before the match that he is not willing to reveal all his cards to group stage opponents in the warm up games, but Ndlanya is one of the critics not convinced. 

“At this time we should know our best starting team, but it doesn’t seem like that. It looks like we are still trying to find the right combination and honestly speaking we don’t have much time for that,” he said.Though, you can't really blame Igesund for being awarded the job late on.

“Somehow the players are playing for themselves, not for the country, as much as they might not realize this, but it will really cost the team. I understand the hunger of excelling but they should never forget that this is a team sport,” said Ndlanya.
