Seychelles shock encapsulates Bafana failings

South Africa's two Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Seychelles in the last few days have shown the casual observer everything they need to know about this current Bafana Bafana side.

At times, they are incisive, skilful and a joy to watch, in other moments sloppy, lackadaisical and utterly frustration in their execution. They can be the both brilliant and bemusing in equal measure.

It is nothing new.

Last year they followed up a commanding 2-0 victory away in Uyo against Nigeria, a match...

South Africa's bid to reach the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations suffered a blow when they wasted a host of chances and were held to a 0-0 draw by minnows Seychelles in their Group E qualifier in Victoria on Tuesday.

South Africa completed a record 6-0 victory over hapless Seychelles in their Africa Cup of Nations Group E qualifier at a sodden FNB Stadium on Saturday to stay firmly on track for next year's finals.

Bafana Bafana will be satisfied with their showing, the biggest ever win for the national side, but in truth might have easily had double the number of goals were it not for some wasteful finishing and the superb saves of Seychelles goalkeeper Romeo Barra.

South Africa player ratings after Seychelles mauling

South Africa secured a country record 6-0 triumph against a woefully out-gunned Seychelles at a wet FNB Stadium on Saturday as their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign fired back into life.

While the scoreline was certainly emphatic, the side also left a number of goals out on the pitch and should have won by a greater margin.
