Bafana Bafana Coach Hugo Broos has trimmed his squad from 36 to 24 players for the last two qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Ghana…”This is not the first time I select Keagan Dolly. When I got here I selected him for Uganda. But he asked not to be in the team because his wife was giving birth. I couldn’t understand but ok””For me Mabasa is not the same as when I picked him. In the game against Ethiopia I asked him what’s wrong. He said he was not feeling good. He put too much pressure on himself.
I took him out. I watched him again for his team, he missed 3 simple chances. His confidence is gone””Stats are good to look at but they don’t tell you everything. Pule Mmodi has 1 goal this season, yes. But I watched him play 4 times, all 4 times we said he’s an interesting player.
He’s quick, dribbles, eliminates players, has secondary assists and he works a lot, he runs””Mmodi also has a good mentality. When he loses the ball he doesn’t walk. He runs, recovers, this shows a good mentality and this is also important. It’s not only me, but my technical team likes him too.
So what if the stats are not fantastic. He’s an interesting player”
