South Africa's hopes and dreams rest in Pretoria, where mighty Mamelodi Sundowns will face AS Vita in the second leg of their CAF Champions League qualifier. The Brazilians went down by a single goal in the dying seconds of the first leg, and their fate could be sealed on Wednesday night. Will the sun set on their story? Or will Sundowns march skywards and emulate, or possibly even surpass, the class of 2001?
Supporters Club caught up with life-long Sundowns fan Bishop to see what he thinks.
"This current crop will copy, learn and reassess how the class of 2001 did it," he said.
"The method is there, even though the game has changed."
Bishop is referring to Sundowns' furthest rampage in this tournament, when they progressed to the final in 2001, ultimately losing to Al Ahly in Cairo.
That team was a powerful squad that included the likes of Lovers Mohlala and Daniel Mudau.
According to Bishop, he was one of 50 fans chosen by the president of the club to fly up to Cairo for the final. He also revealed that he is not worried about the 1-0 deficit Sundowns walk into Wednesday night's game with, and predicted a 3-0 victory for the mighty Yellow Train.
Do you think Downs' current squad is better than the class of 2001?
