All support Bafana Bafana!

South Africans from all background are coming together in support of Bafana Bafana, who will play against France in the 2010 World Cup Soccer tomorrow.

The last football match South Africa’s national team, led by coach Parreira,  played ended in a 3-0 for Uruguay. According to many football fans losing was not what was painful about this particular match: it was the red card goal keeper Khune received from referee Busacca. As a result, Khune is not allowed to play during tomorrow’s game.

With Bafana’s defeat against Uruguay and Mexico’s 2-0 victory against France,  South Africa’s chances of going through to the second round of the 2010 world cup are slim.

Nevertheless, South Africans are gearing behind their team, determined to push them over the victory line. On Facebook a plethora of groups have been established in Support of Bafana Bafana, such as ‘Support Bafana Bafana Day‘.

The authorities too, have pledged their support and have asked the public to do the same.

“We must continue supporting the national team, the African teams and indeed the World Cup tournament in general as hosts,” president Jacob Zuma was quoted yesterday by the media.

“It is in our culture that when there is a visitor that we treat him or her with respect and boot out only hooligans. Let’s make our visitors feel at home. They should see in us that when you lose, you do so with a smile.”

He added: “If we lose let’s not fight, but accept that we will win next time. This is not the last World Cup,” he said, adding that his countrymen should at all times be happy.
