Former CAF, Africa Footballer of The Year Award winner, Samuel Eto’o is surprised that the South Africa National Team has “underperformed” in African football considering the Premier Soccer League (PSL) top rating and one of the best leagues on the continent.

South Africa won the 1996 Africa Cup of Nations as hosts, but since then have been struggling to come out tops as the best team on the continent.

Bafana Bafana after finishing as runners-up at the 1998 tournament and winning a bronze medal at the 2000 finals, quarter-final appearances in 2002, 2013 and 2019 have been the best faring for Bafana.

This has left Eto’o astonished at why South Africa, who he feels have one of the “well-organised” and “best” domestic leagues, have struggled to dominate African football.

“I am surprised that Bafana Bafana have underperformed in the last couple of years,” Eto’o told IOL.

“The South African league is well-organised. It is one of the best leagues in Africa. I don’t understand why the national team is not that good.

“The selectors have to sit down and discuss what their plans are to push this national team to another level and make it the best national team in Africa or in the world. That is possible because of the league.”
