Expect the same story but different cattle of fish when South Africa face Egypt in the Nelson Mandela Challenge this evening. Football is all about results, and if the end result is not pleasing supporters expect pressure to pile.
That has been the story of Bafana Bafana coach and South African fans. Egypt await later today, expect Mashaba and his troops to steal the headlines for the wrong reasons. This time around it may not be that too important like the qualifications matches, but still fans want victory.
The losing mentality has become the fans everyday life. Egypt are no pushovers and it looks like Shakes has this game to prove his worth, however the biggest question remains, does it matter anymore?. The nation have already lost a spot in the biggest African tournament, the Afcon.
The dream is sold to the supporters, but one important thing about dreams is that they are nothing without actions. The same dream is sold year by year but there is absolutely nothing to show for it.
