Welcome to Dafy World

Stuart Baxter, South African coach revealed that Super Eagles manager, Gernot Rohr warned him about Seychelles before Bafana Bafana’s 0-0 draw with the Islanders in African Cup of Nations qualifying game on Tuesday.


After a painful goalless draw with the Seychelles, South Africa had lost their chance of topping the Group E on match day four.

According to Baxter, Rohr had warned him about the bad playing surface and that it was difficult for the Super Eagles players when they played there.


"Immediately after the game, I was frustrated and angry with the way the game turned out," Baxter said to newsmen.

"I met the Nigerian coach in London and he told me that the pitch was the worst he’d ever played on in a competitive game and I agree with him and that’s not an excuse because we still did enough to win the game."
