The South African side to play Sweden

Posted: 13 January 2011 Time: 16:01

The South African side that will go to the African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Sudan next month will take on a touring Swedish squad in Nelspruit on January 22. 

There has been much confusion over the fixture that is listed on the Fifa and Swedish FA websites as a full international, something that was earlier this month dismissed by Safa CEO Leslie Sedibe.   Just to add to the confusion, the Swedish press say their side will be playing against the South African Under-23 team, but Shakes Mashaba’s AmaGlug-glug are taking on Angola in an All Africa Games qualifier on January 23, something the coach has confirmed to understands that the match was initially supposed to be against the full Bafana Bafana side, but as the timing meant that neither the overseas players nor the PSL stars would be available for the game, its status was down-graded.   Coach of the South African CHAN side, Simon Ngomane, is busy putting together his squad for the match, which is set to be announced on Tuesday, and will likely feature players from the First Division, those on the fringes of selection at PSL clubs and promising youngsters.   Lars Richt, team manager for the Swedish side, tells that the Europeans will be bringing out a squad mostly filed with younger players as although their League does not start until March, they cannot get their more experienced stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimović, Johan Elmander and Olof Mellberg into the mix as they play in the main European Leagues and the fixture does not fall on a Fifa international date. Indeed, 16 of the 20 players in the squad are under the age of 25.   Sweden will also be playing Botswana in an international on January 19 as part of their tour to Southern Africa.

Now this is what I call stupidity par excellence- stupidity and lack of concern for country's development beyond imagination. While our opponents up north (the very opponent all Africa fears with passion) prepare for us dearly (something they shouldn't even be doing judging by our poor pedigree), here at home we have management politicians tossing each other the very pride we have to update. W are going down; who the f.u.c.k cares about this Mabaneplaas and their Chan games? If the touring Swedes are going to play them, who is Bafana going to play? F.u.c.k this, I forfeit my citizenship!
