Bafana Bafana will be playing the Super Eagles this evening at the Stade de la Paix in the eagerly awaited Africa Cup of Nations semi-final match. Mpengesi issued the following statement confirming his support of Nigeria. *”I would like to start by extending my congratulations to the Premier Soccer League (PSL) for showcasing the highest number of domestic players at the 2023 AFCON tournament.
Close to 30 players from South Africa, Namibia, Mozambique, Ghana, Nigeria, and even the host country, Ivory Coast who play in the PSL league were part of the AFCON 2023 tournament all thanks to PSL League Chairman Dr. Irvin Khoza. *
*”Acknowledgment is also given to Coach Hugo Broos, who boldly trusted our domestic players, unlike previous Bafana Bafana national team coaches who preferred to select players who played abroad as bench warmers instead, to represent our National Team. My commendation also go out to Mamelodi Sundowns FC and their technical staff for their outstanding contribution, highlighted by the inclusion of 8 players in the Bafana Bafana starting lineup.
*Are you enjoying our new online stadium? SNL24.com is Soccer Laduma’s new home. Therefore, I and Chippa United FC stand behind our player Stanley Nwabali and the Nigerian Super Eagles tomorrow against South Africa Bafana Bafana.
We wish the Super Eagles all the best. *
