'In The Group Of Death, Bafana Can't Die'

Bafana Bafana embark on the mammoth task of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia this weekend. The battle begins with an away fixture against Burkina Faso. Supporters Club discussed the upcoming match with prominent SA supporter Saddam Maake, who has urged the whole nation, from the priests to the nyaope smokers, to rally behind the boys.

"Unfortunately, I won't travel with them to Burkina Faso. I have to go and mobilise supporters in Durban, and do the road show as well for our game on Tuesday 11 October against Ghana at Moses Mabhida Stadium. I will accompany them to the airport before I head to Durban," he said.

"Our boys have to work towards building their legacy. We can't always talk about 1996, that was decades ago. Some of the current players couldn't even talk then because they were still very young, they were toddlers. Hence the need to qualify for the World Cup.

"We last qualified in 2002 and we definitely have to qualify for this one. We should stand together as a rainbow nation. Priests, arch-bishops, nyaope smokers, schoolchildren, prisoners, witch doctors, taxi drivers, taxi owners, tavern owners, drinkers, teachers, nurses and porters, let us all pray for Bafana Bafana. Let us take the legacy of the late Tata Nelson Mandela to new heights.

"To the boys, please bring the three points home. The whole nation is behind you all the way. Our group is touted as the Group of Death, and we shouldn't be the one who dies!"
