Does Bafana have a chance at the World Cup?

Bafana Bafana beat Burkina Faso by three goals to one on Saturday to maintain hope that the team can still qualify for next year's Fifa World Cup to be held in Russia.

With four points from four games the national team is still in last place in their qualifier group.

The boys have just two more games to play against group leaders Senegal to secure a place in next year's World Cup.

The team has messed up their calculations before. So how can they qualify for the 2018 Fifa World Cup?

City Press Sports editor S'busiso Mseleku speaks to Stephen Grootes.

Bafana Bafana have got back to back matches against Senegal which means if they win those matches, they will finish on ten points.

Our national teams have proven over the years they have made it very difficult to take their fate into their own hands because all Bafana needed to do was to beat Cape Verde twice and we would be talking a different story.
