Bafana need a name with vision

I have never enthused over our national soccer team's name.

I have never enthused over our national soccer team's name.

I try to live with it as a South African, but no international team would be proud of a name like Bafana Bafana.

The team's sell-by date nickname has long passed. It was a cheer-up name, but had no meaning. It worked while we rode the crest of democratisation in the country.

Names like these are only suitable for domestic use, like the TV Channel, Mzansi 4 Sure.

Our national soccer team needs a powerful identity and vision-driven name. The name has to be sensible.
