Although we've crashed out of the Caf Champions League, our beloved Kaizer Chiefs should be lifted by the notion of potentially playing Al-Ahly at some point in the Caf Confederations Cup.
This is the competition that Chiefs will drop down into it after failing to make the group stages of the CCL.
Al-Ahly are one of eight teams along with Chiefs who drop into the playoff rounds of the CCC. By the way, they're also the champions of Africa as well!
At this stage of the tournament, the eight losers from the CCL will be drawn to play one of the eight winners from the earlier stages of the CCC. The games will be played on a home and away basis with the winners advancing to the group stages.
Yes, first we have to get past Asec Mimosas from the Ivory Coast. Yes, we have a league title race to focus on. But, and make no mistake, the honour of playing on the continent can't be overlooked.
Let's give our all and conquer. After all, our younger players could learn something from African giants like Al-Ahly.
