Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund will attend a seminar in Cairo, Egypt, to analyse the 28th and 29th editions of the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON).

The three-day gathering starts on Saturday, and will be attended by coaches from participating countries in the previous two editions of the tournament.

Igesund will be among the coaches making presentations about football on the continent.

"I am hoping to represent South Africa well and show the outside world that we were and are always great hosts," said Igesund.

"But most importantly, I will promote our league structures and showcase how strong it is."

Igesund said he would have a particular focus on South Africa's hosting of the AFCON tournament held in January and February.

"I will talk about Bafana Bafana in relation to the AFCON tournament; what was missing from the whole tournament, not just our national team but what I think should be improved overall."

Also invited to the seminar is Spain's head coach Vicente del Bosque whose team is ranked first in the world, and is expected to share some of his experiences with the delegates.
