21-year-old forward Cassius Mailula is having his breakout season in the DStv Premiership and is adequately filling the void of the absence of Peter Shalulile.

The "Sundowns wonderkid Mailula reveals childhood heroes" story, where Mailula names Downs ambassador Teko Modise and current teammate Themba Zwane as his footballing heroes growing up, attracted a rather unexpected comment what appears to be a Chiefs fan: 

"The legendary former Brazil football player Romario would be thrilled to watch this boy play. Hope and pray that God protect all the young and upcoming football stars in our country. It’s been long enough since the golden generation of ‘96.

"The future looks bright when you look at this boy and the likes of Van Wyk at Stellies, Shabalala at Chiefs, and Radiopane, a Bucs youth graduate," says Khosination.

Bafana Bafana followed up their narrow 2-1 win over Mozambique with a 1-1 draw against Angola. The story "Bafana held in final game of 2022," a couple of readers did not hold back in their assessment of Hugo Broos' men: 

"Honestly speaking Bafana's standards has dropped... We as supporters are not even inspired to watch them. I even forget that they are playing.

"Gone are the days when we would stop everything just to watch Bafana Bafana," says Skyline. 

"Surely some of the players are not coming back, we saw them for the last time in the National team colours," says regular commenter Shikabala.
