Hugo Broos and his team once again failed to deliver and their unbeaten run comes to an end.

Bafana fail the nation once again…

First half goals from Innocent Nshuti and Gilbert Mugisha gave the east Africans the three points.

Not only were Bafana defeated, they were outplayed by the Wasps, who should have scored three or four goals at least.

After the match, South African soccer fans took to social media to vent their frustration.

Fans have lost faith in the national soccer team and it’s quite evident by the number of fans attending Bafana games.

A loss to Rwanda should not be considered any upset anymore as the national team has lost to the likes of Ethiopia, Mauritania, Sudan and, Niger.

Bafana will next play Nigeria in their third round of World Cup qualifiers but first they have the African Cup of Nations in January.
