SAFPU congratulates Bafana
Johannesburg - The South African Football Players Union (SAFPU) on Friday congratulated Banfa Bafana on their 1-1 draw against Mexico in the opening match of the Fifa World Cup at Soccer City.
"Although it was a tough game against the Mexicans, we are happy that we have managed to grab one point. We are also happy to be the team to score the tournament's opening goal, which is very important for us as hosts," SAFPU said in a statement.
"Also encouraging is the fact that our boys created a glut of chances and with a bit of luck we could have buried the South Americans. This definitely augurs well for Bafana Bafana.
"Safpu would like to appeal to all South Africans to keep on supporting our national team in their quest to qualify for the second round."
