Cape Town - South African Football Association (SAFA) president, Danny Jordaan, has sent his well wishes to Mamelodi Sundowns ahead of their first-leg Champions League final encounter with Egyptian powerhouse Zamalek at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Saturday.

Jordaan reminded the all conquering champions that they are on the brink of greatness if they overcome the Egyptians; a triumph that will open many other great opportunities in the world of football.

Sundowns would automatically qualify for the FIFA Club World Cup which will be played from December 8-18 in Tokyo, Japan if they conquer Zamalek over the two legs.

"The draw for the FIFA Club World Cup has already been conducted and if Sundowns win the two legs against Zamalek, they will meet New Zealand’s Auckland City and next Champions of Japan in the FIFA Club World Cup," said Jordaan on the official SAFA website.

"The second match would potentially pit Sundowns against Athletico Nacional of Columbia, assuming they win their opening games. If all goes well, Sundowns can then easily end up playing the winner of Club America (Mexico) and Real Madrid; a mouth-watering prospect.

"You obviously stand on the eve of greatness for South African football. We wish you all the best on this incredible journey.

Jordaan added: “Congratulations to the President, Mr Patrice Motsepe, the entire administration and technical staff of Sundowns." 

Kick-off is at 15:00 on Saturday.
