Welcome to China…oops I mean CAPE TOWN :-D…2014 is here.
If you are a soccer fan and love local like me you will be excited to know that the African Championship is in town also known as CHAN 2014
Kicked of on the 11 January 2014 till the 1 February 2014….16 games 32 matches, 4 stadiums and all local based players, what an exciting concept. The true African champions will be crowned come the 1 February 2014
Ofcourse I’m from South Africa so my money is on Bafana…and with a great opening win against Mozambique..lets hope they can build up from there and lift the trophy in the Final 😀
Cmon Boys we are all behind you halala Bafana Bafana halala :-D….unfortunatly as im writing this you all probably know that Bafana is out beaten by Nigeria 3-1 in the 3rd round group games….at least we got a milstone from Bernard Parkerrrrr would’ve liked to see more goals from open play though.
Yes the nation is upset we were expecting more…but this is a team sport and with any tournament it’s how you perform on the day that counts. Blaming one player is not the answer. I guess its back to the drawing board as usual, im hoping the plan to develop football at grassroot level works this sound exciting.
But back to the Beautiful Game…with 2014 being a World Cup Year lets hope whoever lifts the trophy come the 1 February will make Africa proud in Brazil.
There is still time to grab a ticket to the final at Cape Town Stadium… Lets fill the stadium for the love of the beautiful game – Bring the gees.
As an afterthought I think they should add this tournament to FIFA 15 maybe then Bafana will have a chance to win it – Jokes 😀
Proudly South African.
