Will Bafana Bafana rise above?

2010-04-19 15:25
Dear Editor,

Legends are created when people rise above the odds and despite everything succeed.

Bafana Bafana, your crossroads are little more than 50 days away. There are many who do not believe you can make it and they will make their voices heard in response to this letter. Your coach's world cup record with teams other than Brazil is poor.

This though is not Parreira's time. It is not the time of the columnists, nor the time of those who doubt you. Nor is it even the time of those who believe in you. No - it is your time!

When that whistle blows to kick off the first match of the world cup, it becomes your time. It is a time when you make a choice.

Do you let Mexico, Uruguay and France ride over you exposing your weaknesses?

Or do you rise above this all and become legends!

Make your choice. We watch!
