Bafana Bafana's number one keeper Itumeleng Khune is out injured while the nation plays their last Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, against Libya on Sunday.
As a result Khune has got the ball rolling on Twitter, posting a random video showcasing South African skill. Khune is inspired by our African flavour, but some critics are not impressed.
On one camp the followers believe we need more skill like this to light up the PSL, and that copying Europe's style of football will only allow us to chase their shadows.
In the next camp there's the view that the Diski style skills have always taken our soccer backwards. Two followers praised the skill and compared the unnnamed local player to Ronaldinho.
Which camp do you fall in?
Then he gets a professional contract and only play 2 games then boom back to the dust. These kinds of players have no future and are incompetent when coming to psl or any professional soccer.— Mthimban' Dlamini (@TenMillion007) March 21, 2019

They should strive in playing like international players tho. Tell me- have u ever seen international soccer players dribbling a person whilst standing in one position and wasting game time when they could’ve passed the ball & went for the goal.— Yung Bomboclat. (@Mhan_L) March 22, 2019

I could pay my last cents to go watch that at any given day 👌👌— TshepisoR (@Large_Skipper) March 21, 2019
If a Brazilian does what I just saw in the video, then that Brazilian is useless. A skillful soccer player will beat a player and go for a cross, goal or forward. This rubbish is not soccer but street freestyle.— #YamaMbuthuma (@aphiwe_pluz) March 22, 2019
