There has been harsh criticism from fans over Bafana Bafana's performance in the African Cup of Nations (Afcon) with social media users hoping the team would return home to avoid further embarrassment, but the team scored a place in the last 16 on Tuesday when Mali defeated Angola.
Bafana will face Egypt on Saturday to remain in the Afcon.
Eusebius McKaiser spoke to former Bafana Bafana defender Matthew Booth and Tiso Blackstar digital sports editor Mninawa Ntloko to hear their take on whether or not the team has a chance at winning the game, as well as their overall performance.
Ntloko says anything is possible.
Historically football is a weird sport, you could have the world's best team play 10 matches against a team they are expected to beat but there is that one game that they will lose to the very same team everyone expected them to [win against].— Mninawa Ntloko, Digital sports editor - Tiso Blackstar
Our journalist up in Egypt, we have been chatting to him and he tells me that the Egyptians are not as confident as we think they are. The feeling is that you never know with knockout situations. When you get to knockouts anything is possible here.— Mninawa Ntloko, Digital sports editor - Tiso Blackstar
Booth agrees with Eusebius that being an underdog is not always a bad thing.
If you look at the history of Bafana we have always seemed to rise to the occasion against bigger teams and that is sometimes to our detriment because we don't play to our normal standards against so-called lesser teams.— Matthew Booth, Former Bafana Bafana defender
I am still very hopeful. We haven't seen the best of our team over the first three games and I am waiting for them to come to the party and certainly hoping Mo Salah wakes up on the wrong side of the bed on Saturday.— Matthew Booth, Former Bafana Bafana defender
