'We Have Beaten Brazil Before, Anything Is Possible'

South Africa waits with baited breath as our young, fierce soldiers prepare to show the world what we are made of at the upcoming Olympics. They face a tough task, particularly given that the boys have been drawn in the same group as Brazil and will face off against world superstar Neymar, among others. We turn to the supporters for inspiration.

"The boys have come really far. Qualifying on its own is an accomplishment. So no matter what happens, they must hold their heads high," Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana superfan Machaka Masilo said.

"It's a tough group but I would like to advise the boys not to look down. Anything can happen.

"We have beaten Brazil before, so anything is possible, really. They must know that we are not just going there to add numbers, we are not going just for the handshakes, and we are not going just to be on TV. They must just do the job and luck will follow.

"Also, for inspiration, they will be playing in front of many scouts, so hopefully one of them can be snatched up and start playing overseas.

"They must fly the flag high and know that we are behind them. They must not feel the pressure, we are behind them all the way."

South Africa last qualified for Olympics football 16 years ago, when the likes of Matthew Booth and Fabian McCarthy charged the team forward. In that tournament, South Africa went on to beat a Brazilian team featuring the famous Ronaldinho 3-2.

Can we emulate that 2000 Olympics performance?
