Cape Town - Bafana Bafana captain Dean Furman is hoping the side's contributions over the last six months can culminate in something special at the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations. South Africa cruised through the qualifying rounds with an undefeated record to finish top of their group, while they are also yet to taste defeat since Shakes Mashaba's appointment as head coach at the end of July.And, with their opening AFCON encounter coming against Algeria on Monday evening, Furman is hoping they can continue their form throughout the tournament in a bid to replicate their continental success in the 1996 installment on home soil."This is the moment we have been building up to for the last six months when we discussed in the first camp before qualification that this is where we want to be," the Doncaster Rovers midfielder told SuperSport."We are delighted to be here and excited. We can't wait for the kick-off. Preparations have gone really well and we have worked hard over the last couple of weeks. We have had three positive games for us, albeit with different challenges."We are now excited it's just the waiting around that is probably the worst while we wait for kick-off, but we are certainly excited and hopefully we will continue with our good form."
