Former Bafana Bafana goalkeeper, Brian Baloyi, voiced his opinion on the performance of the national team in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).
Ex-Kaizer Chiefs player, Brian Baloyi, has questioned the tactics used by Bafana Bafana coach, Stuart Baxter.
The national team is set to face off against Egypt on Saturday night after barely scraping through to the Afcon last 16.
Baloyi, 45, questioned Baxter's tactics, adding that Bafana had been too defensive during the tournament.
"I still believe with the type of players we have, we're not bold enough to go all-out and attack teams. Play our own football. We give opposition too much respect and I fear that what we are going to do against Egypt," said Baloyi.
Baloyi added he hoped the players and coach heard him and that they won't be offended by his criticism.
He added that they have the potential to be great and he believes they have what it takes to win.
"The only way we can beat Egypt is when our boys go out and play the way we played when we beat Nigeria in Nigeria. Somebody needs to remind them how they beat Nigeria in Nigeria," Baloyi said.
Briefly.co.za gathered Baloyi said the team should stop hiding behind the coach and take lead. Addressing the performance of the goalkeepers, Baloyi said he was satisfied.
"Both keepers have done extremely well. In the first game, Ronwen kept us in it and Darren played well as well in the second game, so in that department we have done well," Baloyi said.
