While everyone in South Africa was focusing on the most exciting weekend with MTN8 quarter-finals kicking off and some of the great fixtures in the international space, Bafana Bafana was playing the CHAN qualification match on Sunday evening.
Unfortunately, The Boys have suffered a 2-0 defeat in Angola, putting them at risk of not qualifying for Chan next year, January 2023.
Often, when Bafana Bafana is playing, the Dstv premier league would be on a break, allowing the managers to call more experienced players to assist.
However, this was not the case on Sunday because it was the MTN-8 weekend where local clubs needed their man to fight for the R8 million prize money.
Hard luck to Bafana Bafana and better results next time, in the second leg which will take place at Orlando Stadium, 04 September 2022.
