Khumalo: Spirits Are High

Bongani Khumalo will be captaining Bafana Bafana during the African Cup of Nations, and is expected to lead the team tomorrow night when South Africa host Algeria at the Orlando Stadium.

Khumalo will lead the team on home soil in the African show piece, with the nation’s hopes resting in their captain’s hands. The captain is in high spirits leading up to the tournament and says that there is a positive atmosphere within the camp.

 

"The spirit in the team is high. The players are motivated and the support we get from the nation keeps us going. Just like the supporters, we also want to win against Algeria and take it from there going into the tournament. We are playing at home so we have to win and we want to win. 

 

The players know that they have a duty to perform for the country, and hence the high spirits," Khumalo concluded.
