Cape Town - With a fine performance against Australia a couple of days ago, Bafana Bafana are hoping their new group of youngsters are the future for South African soccer.

Ayanda Patosi, Thulani Serero and Bongani Zungu, all believe that it will not be long before Bafana Bafana supporters can smile broadly once more.

With vigorous travels in the continent during the upcoming 2015 Orange Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers ahead, the Australasia tour may very well prove vital in the preparation for the youngsters.

Patosi, who scored a memorable goal in a 1-1 draw against Australia, was quoted by supersport.com website: “This was a great outing. It is priceless to play such games away from home. These are ideal preparations to gear oneself for hostile reception whenever one plays away from home.”

In the first match of the qualifiers, South Africa is away to Sudan in Khartoum and Patosi said this Australasian trip could not have come at a better time.

“These away matches will also help give the boys much-needed experience. We need that. Most of the guys in the team are talented but have never been exposed to intimidating crowds away from South Africa. When playing the qualifiers, one needs to be as tough as tick,” added Patosi.

The Bafana boys will play their final game of the tour against New Zealand on Friday evening before returning home on Saturday.
