staff, I take this opportunity to congratulate you, the Head Coach and his technical team, support
staff and your warriors on the field of play for achieving another historical milestone for South
African Football – and a personal victory for each one of you!
This heralds the first time a South African youth team has qualified for back to back World Cup’s –
and your commitment and determination provided the victory that propelled you towards this
You have been riding the crest of the wave following your success at the 2018 COSAFA CUP, where
you also achieved back to back Championship success, and this augurs well for BAFANA BAFANA in
their quest for World Cup success in 2022.
You are part of the larger group that continues to makes SAFA walk tall with pride, and you also
make BURGER KING and the Nation proud!
