Bafana Bafana's chances of qualifying for the 2018 Fifa World Cup finals in Russia suffered a massive blow following their second successive defeat at the hands of Cape Verde on Tuesday.

Garry Rodrigues netted two brilliant goals in the second half, which were enough to take the Blue Sharks to second on the Group D log with two games to go. 

While a section of Bafana fans called for Stuart Baxter's exit after Friday's defeat in Praia, those calls grew louder as more fans joined the party, using #BaxterOut.

The majority of fans, including a few players who played at the highest level of the South African football, believe that Baxter got his team selection wrong. 

However, there are those who feel the South African Football Association (Safa) should stick with Baxter despite the back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde.

Some high-profile figures in the media industry have also lost faith in Bafana Bafana. 

We all don't know what the future holds for Baxter, but one thing is for sure that the 64-year-old will have some explaining to do when he meets his bosses at Safa House in the next few days.
