Despite losing, Banyana Banyana did a great job, says Eusebius

Banyana Banyana has been knocked out of the FIFA Women’s World Cup campaign.

The team lost all three matches in their group which comprised Spain, China and Germany.

What can be done to strengthen the national team going forward?

Is it time for a women's league in the country?

Callers on the Eusebius McKaiser show say Safa (South African Football Association) is to blame for the performance of the team.

Caller Xolani says sugarcoating the failure of Banyana Banyana will kill the team.

We need to create a women's league. If we have that competitive league, then we can archive something better. Looking at Germany and US you could see there is a league there, they play as a team. The US female team can give Bafana Bafana a hiding as well.

Xolani, Caller

Eusebius says despite the challenges faced by Banyana Banyana, they have done a great job.

Banyana Banyana managed to succeed despite the fact that there isn't the same level of interest nationally in supporting them, showing support for them when they do perform. There are resource disparities they don't even get paid the same, and under those conditions, I think they did a decent job.

Eusebius McKaiser, Show host

Another caller Sipho reiterates that there is a need for a women's league to strengthen the national team.

Until we have a league, nothing will change. Another celebration is at least they are coached by a South African.

Walter says Safa sent the wrong technical team to the world cup.

We can't blame these girls. I blame Safa. You need experience in the World Cup; we should have people like Neil Tovey, Lucas Radebe, who have world cup exposure to support the coach. We played the wrong game. I agree we need a professional women's league. We are not playing to win; we are playing not to lose this is our problem in South Africa.
