Pirates Fan: There's A Bright Future Ahead For Bafana

Going into the COSAFA Cup final against Botswana on Saturday, Bafana Bafana have the backing of the supporters to bring the title back home. Boasting a youthful squad, South Africa demolished Swaziland to progress to the tournament's decider.

Orlando Pirates superfan Dejan Miladinovic had nothing but high praise for the young men flying the flag high.

"It is very good to see that our young squad has been able to make it to the final," he said.

"This is a great achievement and it shows that these youngsters have potential to take our national team to greater heights in any competition that we partake in.

"Going into this encounter against Botswana, I think that we can easily beat them because they are not a very strong team and we have a powerful team going into the clash."

This tournament will be regarded as practice for the upcoming Rio Olympics, where South Africa will be hoping to leave a lasting mark.

"We should use this tournament to prepare for the Olympics," Dejan continued. 

"To see the best combinations and to get the mindsets of the players ready for the big occasion.

"I believe that there is a brighter future ahead for our national team."
