Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana were knocked out of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations by Mali, at the quarter-final stage, however the team displayed that they do have a bright future ahead.

According to the soccerladuma.co.za website, striker Katlego "Killer" Mphela believes that with South Africa’s young talents emerging on the international stage, Bafana is heading in the right direction.

The Mamelodi Sundowns striker, who failed to score a single goal in the tournament, said that our young players coming through the ranks are quality.

“It is very sad that we lost on penalties but one thing that I know is that we have a great future. If you look at how many young players are in the team, then you know that the future of South African football is great.

“What we need to do is keep the team together and play as many games as we can. We would have loved to go far in the tournament but it wasn't to be. But as the future is concerned, we have a great one," Mphela concluded.
