  1. Baposeko amano kuli defence.We are not very comfortable.The koreans exposed our defence which has always looked suspect. Am sure the coaches are doing something about it.

  2. yes, we have a problem with the while team o speed. they.players are.too slow to run. they like walking with the ball. the other team to.close up gaps. they learn to explode when they get the ball. and to run fast back when.they lose the ball. otherwise we trouble with Asian teams like Japan and Korea etc

  3. Having watched the 4-1 loss to Korea. Some of the defencsive mistakes I noted were as follows:
    1. The boys gave the koreans to much space in mid-field and final third.
    2. Clearances were also a bit too casual.
    3. Man marking seemed lacking. A general lack of pace when tracking back.
    4. Some lapse in concentration and ball watching.
    If coaches can work on these and other weakness that others have pointed. Then we as fans have the right to be very optimistic about this upcoming U20 World Cup.
