Halala, Bafana!

Get it, Bafana Bafana, get it! That should be the rallying cry ahead of 2008 Confederation of Africa Championships starting in Ghana on Sunday.

Get it, Bafana Bafana, get it! That should be the rallying cry ahead of 2008 Confederation of Africa Championships starting in Ghana on Sunday.

The boys did us proud in 1996 when they snatched glory in our first shot at the title.

But we ended the last CAF without a point or a goal. Our world ranking has slid down a slippery path since.

It was the same with the Boks when Jake White took over before the World Cup in France last year. And White's boys did us oh so proud.

Hope springs eternal. We believe our sports teams can flourish through adversity.

But above all, they need every South African behind them to shosholoza Bafana.

All the best.
