Under-pressure Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki can start focusing on vital tactical issues in Durban today after he had to spend the last few days dealing with major off-field matters related to his team’s crucial clash with Sao Tome in the Afcon 2021 qualifying competition on Friday.

This includes attending a tombstone unveiling for slain former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa on Tuesday, where current goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune and SA Football Association (Safa) president Danny Jordaan shared touching words.

Before that event, it was confirmed that SuperSport United striker Bradley Grobbelaar had become the seventh player ruled out of Ntseki’s rain-soaked camp for medical reasons.
