There’s Need To Better Relations With Hugo Broos.

South Africa’s national team has been regarded as a sleeping giant for a while now, and looking at the returns in recent matches, it is hard to argue against that.

Despite this, the likes of Ghana and Senegal, countries that are not known for having strong domestic leagues, have excelled at Bafana Bafana’s expense. The national team is coming from two straight draws, with minnows Eswatini, and AFCON 2023 hosts Ivory Coast.

Players unavailable

Broos was at a loss with players seeking to be excused from national team duties yet a few days later going on to feature for their clubs. The nature of the fractured relations between the national team and stakeholders stretch to the PSL schedules, with the two parties clearly
