Cape Town - Orlando Pirates chairperson Irvin Khoza hopes that the success of his club in the African Champions League will once again spur on Bafana Bafana to conquer the continent.

Pirates are in the final of the Champions League after eliminating Tunisia's Esperence in the semi-finals.

Speaking to the club's official website, Khoza said the success of Orlando Pirates is not for the Buccaneers alone. "It is for our nation and region."

Khoza also commended the Orlando Pirates players for not complaining, at any stage during this grueling contest.

Pirates are the only South African club to have won the Champions League trophy - in 1995 - and have an opportunity to add a second African title to the club's honours roll.

Bucs meet Al-Ahly in the two-legged final, set for November 2, with the return fixture to be played a week later on November 9.
