The South African Football Association (SAFA) has noted with admiration the overwhelming support, love and commitment for Bafana Bafana by all South Africans.
The Association would like to thank the fans for the unrelenting support and urge the public to continue rallying behind our boys at all times.
While the outcome of the opening game against Cape Verde disappointed the majority of Bafana supporters, the other result featuring Angola and Morocco (which also ended in a goalless draw) has left Group A wide open with everything to play for.
"Bafana Bafana needs our support as we still have an excellent opportunity to progress further in this tournament," says SAFA President, Kirsten Nematandani.
"Football is as much a mind game as it is one of skill and we urge the public to continue supporting and encouraging our boys to regain that winning mentality".
Coach Gordon Igesund said the South African supporters are special.
"The crowd at Soccer City on Saturday was brilliant; they really tried to lift the team in what was very challenging playing conditions. We now need the public to go to Moses Mabhida Stadium in their numbers and give the boys the support and work as the 12th player. The dream of winning this tournament is still very much alive and we believe it is a question of time before we turn the chances into goals."
"We will do our best to make our amazing supporters happy. They have been fantastic throughout and they need to be rewarded with performances that warrant their unwavering support," said Igesund about the magnificent support the team has received from the public.
