Things did not end well for Bafana as they made bad history of becoming the first nation to be knocked out on group stages.

Mokoena came back to South African football in the Premier Soccer League and joined Bidvest Wits and retired.

He believes that he had an incredible career.

"Those who called me a cow must ask themselves how I succeeded playing in Sydney Olympics, I played for Bayer Leverkusen (Germany) Ajax Amsterdam (Netherlands) Genk(Belgium) Blackburn Rovers (England) I was even given the captaincy by Portsmouth. I played FA cup final."


"What did all these Coaches see in me that the South Africans couldn't? I played for Alberto Parreira,Mark Hughes and Jomo Sono. I think in order to be respected in South Africa you must play for Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates or Mamelodi Sundowns. People must check my CV.

If so, ngempela how come he reached these top levels abroad which most of the so called ace SA players could never reach? Defenders by their very nature are not popular players. They just need to be effective in that role, I think to a large extent he achieved that at top level.
