Saddam Maake also sent his message to Bafana Bafana as they go on to play against Cameroon in the AFCON Qualifiers at the Limbe Stadium on Saturday, with the second leg scheduled for Tuesday, March 29 at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
"When they come to play on the 29th, they'll find us in Durban and they must know that we're fully behind them. They must do the talking on the field of play."
"We love our boys, and we'll always support them. They have to restore our country's pride. People are talking out there, saying things like "South Africans have too much money, but on the field of play they don't win their matches."
When he was asked how far South African football has come ever since Bafana won the 1996 edition of the AFCON tournament, the passionate supporter vigorously lamented the current crop of players.
"Those players were playing for the legacy, the pride and the name of the country! These players of today play for themselves, money, fancy cars and their agents."
"Back then the players knew what was expected of them. The boys must win on Saturday! They must go for a kill, do or die, both away and here at home."
