    Zoo republic playing senseless friendlies because CAF refuse to take Afcon serious. But you see CAF president care more about South Africa and we are enjoying the COSAFA Cup. Because South Africa didn’t qualify then there will be make sure we cancel Afcon and play new qualifiers mark my words zoogerians. South Africa is African Leaders.

     
    • Idiot no be your fault I blame it on CAF, when you people think highly of yourselves, make silly comments and looking down on other African affairs whereas pay much emphasis to only your own doings. CAF is very much aware of what they are doing by postponing everything except their highly rated COSAFA Cup that they even invited Senegal. Mr Pinnick who has a big influence at the CAF should look into this.
