Cape Town - SAFA President Danny Jordaan said that a lot has been invested in soccer and they’re ready for the world to see.

Jordaan says the country’s football image will be boosted together with the players’ careers and which will also put SAFA on the map, on the continent and globally.

“We have invested a lot in our game lately and the fruits of such sacrifices are there for all to see," said Jordaan.

“We have been speaking of Vision 2022 and I am glad to say we are slowly realising this goal sooner than expected.

“This is good for the country’s football image, good for the players’ careers and puts SAFA as one of the leading Associations on the continent and globally in good standing."

The 63-year-old wished the national Under-23s and Banyana Banyana, the national womens’ team, the best of luck and stated that he trusts they will raise the South African flag and make the country proud.

“To both the under-23 and Banyana Banyana, I would want to say good luck in your weekend games.”

“Go and do the country proud and close the Mandela month in style,” added Jordaan.
