The President of the Confederation of Africa n Football- CAF, Dr. Patrice Motsepe is still not happy in relations to the Bafana Bafana’s failure to qualify for the just ended 2022 World Cup.
South Africa finished second behind Ghana in the same group in a game in which the Black Stars scored what pundits termed as a “controversial” penalty.
The CAF boss believes his nation had what it takes to have been on Qatar bases on the output he saw.
“I have a duty to the rest of the continent, and I am a South African, and I’m grateful to this country. It’s made me what I am,” said Motsepe as quoted by Farpost.
“It makes me very sad because we should be there, we can be there, and we will be there. This country has the most talented football players, boys and girls.
“Sometimes the real progress is not talking and responding as I do now, but it’s in private meetings, private discussions, and confidential meetings with a clear focus that South African football deserves to be among the best in the world and will be among the best on the world.” He added.
Ghana who qualified ahead of South Africa failed to go past the first round after losing two games and winning one.
