Bafana Secure Invite To International Tournament

Bafana Bafana Secure Invite To International Tournament

By Soccer Laduma - Feb 13, 2018 06:59 PM
Bafana Bafana could be heading to Bangkok next month after securing an invite to the 2018 King’s Cup in Thailand.
 
 
The competition, which has been running for 50 years, takes place every year in the Thai capital and is run by the Football Association of Thailand.
 
Players such as Peter Schmeichel, Brian Laudrup, Henrik Larsson, Robert Lewandowski and Brazilian legends like Ronaldinho, Cafu, Roberto Carlos and Rivaldo have all graced the tournament in the past, and there is now the possibility of South Africa taking place for the first time.
 
Hosts, Thailand, as well as Gabon, Slovakia and the United Arab Emirates have already been confirmed for this year’s edition, meaning that the Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Marek Hamsik are likely to be in attendance, while Bafana could potentially become a fifth nation.
 
According to Siya sources, Stuart Baxter has received an invite to the King’s Cup at the end of March, and it is thought that – as an invitational tournament – the majority of the costs could be covered by the hosts.
 
At this point in time it remains to be seen whether the South African Football Association will accept the invitation from FAT, but it would offer Baxter a good opportunity to take a look at the new generation of Mzansi’s players.
 
South Africa haven’t faced non-African opponents since back in October 2015 when they took on Costa Rica and Honduras, and the King’s Cup could give them a chance to take on nations from both Asia and Europe as well as Africa. There has been no word about whether SAFA are interested or not.

I'm sure we've accepted; Futhi, it was probably a South African reprobate that will gain in somehow or even financially, who pushed for the "invite". Really guys, who will invite Bafana Bafana plus cover majority of the costs?. Something doesn't sound right La.

And why would we decline?, it seems this is the kind of tournaments we should be focusing on since you don't need to qualify for them. I'm just saying...

Kevin de Brunye could be playing his international football for Burindi(his mother Annaa de bruyne was born there) when de bruyne was a young star @Genk FC that he could qualify for england but was swifly out the window once his mother birthplace became apparent its a shame for Burudi because they never qualify for worldcup or african cup they could do with a qulity player like KEVIN de BRUNYE
