Baxter explain how Bafana Bafana struggle.

Bafana Bafana dropped points at home to Libya, and head coach Stuart Baxter has explained where he felt his side were weak on the day.

Bafana had to settle for a share of the spoils after drawing 0-0 with Libya at the Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday evening.

The Bafana head coach claims his charges were weak when it came to retaining the ball.

“I thought it was a good game of football. It was a good advert of African football,” Baxter told SuperSport after the game.
“But we weren’t really true to ourselves in the second half. We changed it because we had three central midfielders in the first half, neither of them getting really close alongside Percy [Tau].
“Even though we penetrated we didn’t have enough bodies in the box.
“[In] the second half I thought let me get Bradley [Grobler] in, he’ll attack crosses better. [Keagan] Dolly in the number 10 role he’ll get closer and Percy on the flank.
“I thought we were a bit weak in terms of securing the ball. Once we won the ball very often we turned the ball back to them because they were a bit stronger. So disappointed with that.
“But I thought the players worked very hard. I don’t think we can complain about that.
