The African National Congress (ANC) joins millions of South Africans in congratulating our national soccer team, Bafana Bafana, for advancing to the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations, by beating tournament hosts, Egypt.
Bafana Bafana’s sensational victory has brought jubilation at home and abroad. The ANC also congratulates Thembikosi Lorch for scoring such a crucial goal on his debut which paved the way for Bafana Bafana to advance to the quarterfinals.
The nation stands behind the team coach, Stuart Baxter, the technical team and all our players as they prepare to face Nigeria on Wednesday.
We call on the entire nation to rally behind Bafana Bafana as they continue on their journey to conquer the continent and win one of Africa’s most prized soccer competitions.
The ANC is confident that this team has what it takes to make the class of 1996 proud.
