Correctional Services said that “matters are under control” at Johannesburg’s Sun City Prison on Wed.
THEIR inclusion into the Bafana Bafana final squad is still a major discussion point - and while many do not know how Lance Davids and Anele Ngcongca did it, their best friends certainly do.
The two players have a few things in common - they left the country at an early age to pursue their dreams overseas and both have since adapted their games so they can play in almost any position.
Clemen Mashonga, Davids' friend of 15 years says it wasn't a shock to him that the Ajax Cape Town man made it into Parreira's squad.
"Lance is unbelievably focused. That is why, against the odds, he is where he is," Mashonga said.
"Lance left South Africa when he was 13 years old to go overseas by himself - no parents, no friends."
Thami Zele and Ngcongca, is a regular at his Belgian team K R C Genk, have lived in the same street and have been friends since they were little boys.
Clearly, the Brazilian was impressed by what he saw.
"Anele's biggest strength is his big heart. He could be listening to the most brutal criticism, and he would not even take it personally. This character trait that will stand him in good stead during the tournament as people are likely to get on his case if he makes a mistake," said Zele.
