Bafana Bafana vs Spain – 20 June 2009

by Gerhard

Spain won the game 2-0 but didn’t humiliate South Africa at all. Bafana really played well and in the first half Matthew Booth keep Torres at bay very well.   Suddenly SA is starting to play very good soccer and i think a lot of credit must go to Joel Santana the Coach. I don’t know what it is but his doing something right.

Joel Santana-01The Bloemfontein crowd again was at there utmost best and Bafana can’t complain that they haven’t efficient support. I even heard a overseas lady said on the TV that she haven’t seen such passion even as a Liverpool fan going to all their games. Just one negative thing. I think they must ban the Vuvuzelas as quickly as possible because all the noise is killing the positive atmosphere that wants to come through by the singing and clapping hands of the crowd.

Crowd-01On the field Spain showed why they are the European Champs. They got such a lot of options that it is very difficult for another team to counter them. This image of Torres trying to beat Tsepo Masilela, one of Bafana’s defenders.
