Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Teko Modise, has taken time to wish Bafana Bafana well ahead of the start of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.
Modise, who earned more than 60 caps for the national team, is confident that Shakes Mashaba has assembled a capable team for the tournament in Equatorial Guinea.
“Indeed it is another year that promises nothing but great opportunities. I hope that everyone had a fantastic time during the holidays. There is so much to do and there is no better time than the present to start doing so.
“Regarding football, the Absa Premiership is still taking a break and has given us plenty of time to relax and recuperate. The time for the league to resume will come and hopefully all the teams will be ready to give another entertaining round of football. Until then we will be preparing for the journey that awaits us as professionals.
“The 2015 African Cup of Nations will take place shortly. Africa is expected to showcase the talent brewed from the African soil. Football is what we live for and it is exciting to know that our national team (Bafana Bafana) will be taking part in the tournament.
“Shakes Mashaba and (the) boys have been doing well. We qualified for the AFCON and have been preparing for the group stages of the greatly anticipated competition. Recently Bafana drew against Cameroon in Gabon following a round of good results in the build-up.
“The friendly match was one that indicated that we are not far from the goal of doing well in the tournament. I hope that the boys will make us proud as a nation and I wish them all the luck. Welcome to the year 2015 everyone,” Modise told his official website.
