In a press conference that took place when Stuart Baxter and his Bafana Bafana team arrived home after their AFCON quarter-final loss to Nigeria on Wednesday, Stuart Baxter was asked to give a mark on his performance in the tournament.
“To rate my own job‚ I’ll never do that because that’s being pompous and blown up and I wouldn’t do that. If I was to stay in the job‚ it was because I think I could do the job properly.
“Without sounding arrogant‚ not one per cent of my self-esteem would come from questions like that asking me to give a mark on my own performance.”
Bongani ‘Da Bongz’ Nkosi and Thabang ‘Da Real Cheez’ Kgeledi discuss last weekend’s soccer topics. But they should hurry because each topic has a time limit.

19 Banyana Banyana vs the Netherlands, Winnie Mandela International Challenge, 15:00, Cape Town Stadium
22 Banyana Banyana vs Sweden, Albertina Sisulu Centenary Challenge, 19:00, Cape Town Stadium
Can Stuart Baxter be the guy that turns the Bafana Bafana ship around and build a culture of winning football in South Africa?
It would be understandable if you thought Stuart Baxter isn’t the best fit for the Bafana job. Firstly, he was hired after SAFA fired beloved Shakes Mashaba over some bull shit and secondly, his team’s performance in the World Cup qualifiers was embarrassing, to say the least. As you know an international coach is judged on whether his side qualifies for the World Cup or not, rather than how many irrelevant soccer nations he can beat up in the Cosafa Cup.
