The embarrassing performance by Bafana Bafana in Tunisia claimed one of the country's top football administrators when Irvin Khoza, who was the vice president of the national football body, resigned from his post.
The Iron Duke is expected to meet with his former boss, the president of South African Football Association (Safa), Molefi Oliphant, later this week when Oliphant returns from Tunisia.
Oliphant is hoping to persuade the powerful administrator to reconsider his resignation before Safa's meeting.
Khoza resigned from Safa after claiming that he was sick of shouldering the blame for the orginisation's many blunders.
Safa is scheduled to hold a general meeting on March 6 and among other things that are suppose to be on the agenda is the appointment of a new coach for the national team.
Besides being the Chairman of Orlando Pirates, Khoza in also the head of the board of governors of the Premier Soccer League as well as the co chairman of the 2010 bid committee.
