Gaxa relishing ‘big game’

Siboniso Gaxa hoping for AFCON 2013 chance against Mali

Posted: 30 January 2013 Time: 10:46 pm

Siboniso Gaxa says it would be an honour to play in Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal against Mali.

Bafana Bafana face the west Africans in Durban and have been forced into a change following the suspension of regular right-back Anele Ngcongca.

Gaxa is set to fill in, and he assures the fans he is ready for the challenge.

“We have to be positive all the time,” the Kaizer Chiefs man says. “No-one is guaranteed a place in the team; everyone deserves to play, but only 11 can start at any given time.

“It would be nice for me to represent my country on home soil. I am really looking forward to that if I do start. I have played more than 50 times for the national team and this would be one of the big games for me and for the country.”

For his part, Ngcongca is confident his replacement will do the job against Mali.

“It’s sad that I won’t feature in this match because I was really looking forward to it, but then again it’s part of the game,” the Belgium-based player says.

“It’s a great pity that I won’t be on field but I am confident that whoever gets the chance will do a magnificent job because we are all working on one mission – to proceed to the semi-finals and go all the way in the tournament.”

Siboniso Pa Gaxa looks like a reptile. A lizard to be exact. Just look at him. It's like he's about to stick out a two-edged tongue.

C what I meant???? The chimpanzee plyers are selected bcause the media makes a big noise about these useless cows. This is the 4th article that kickoff has is reporting as if for sure Ingasende will select this lizard. Why...they are trying to influence the coach. ......I seems the coach read this kickoff kak. Dint blame Khumal& sangweni. If the coach field Masilela and Gaxa.

The sooner people (Pirates idiotic fans to be exact) realize that @Khosi we have the best players the better it'll be for them. Chiefs players will always dominate when it comes to Bafana Bafana because they're just the best. Every pirates fan wishes that Matlaba replaces Anele at right-back but in reality they know that GA a gonna play. They say GA a looks like a lizard but they forget that they have a certain Sfiso Myeni in their team.

You what? This means nothing coming from you.

Phungwayo, Ritchie, Matlaba and Punch Masinamela were all performing well for their clubs. All of these players won DSTV walkers, and the first 2 won it more than once. When it was time for international friendlies, you know what Gordon did? He went on Youtube and selected a guy who plays in Slovakia and handed him a place in the starting line up against Brazil.

Oh no. He did not stop there. On Youtube he also found a player in the 3rd division of England when George Maluleka, Andile Jali, Thandani Ntshumayelo, Reneilwe were all doing well for their clubs. And he handed that player a place in the starting line up against Brazil, relegating senior players like Reneilwe to the bench for a player he said, “I watched his videos and they impressed me.”

What is the difference between Quinton Fortune and Gordon Igesund? Both think European based players are better than Local based players. So what makes you think we will slam a guy there in UK, when there is coach here Mzansi with the exact same mentality?

Here in Mzansi we don't care. As far as I'm concerned, you comment was just to remind us that you stay in the UK. We know dude. You say it in almost all your comments, “here in the UK” lmao.

What's this noise about? What Siyabonga did testify that Bafana without players with winning mentality is useless. In short Bafana is useless without Pirates players. Topic closed...........

Mali is a team that heavily relies on wing play so we won't have much difficulty there. GI must strenghten our middlefield because that's where the fight will be, isolate Keita and this team will be dead. BB4Afcon.
