Shakes Mashaba is likely to be given the first two 2018 World Cup qualifiers to prove his worth as Bafana Bafana coach, Phakaaathi understands.

Mashaba seems unlikely to be dismissed outright by the South African Football Association executive committee, who meet on Saturday and are expected to be presented with a teachnical report on Mashaba’s position. But if Mashaba fails to do well in the first two qualifiers, away in Burkina Faso on October 8 and at home to Senegal on November 12, he looks very likely to go.
