With the best team that coach Shakes Mashaba has picked with his technical staff and selectors, I am convinced and confident that our boys (Bafana Bafana) can overcome Algeria in their opening game during the African Cup of Nations. That will be the kind of boost the squad will need for this competition.
We have good strikers and a very solid midfield and I am sure Bra Shakes will start with an attacking kind of football and take the game to Algeria as our players are pacy, fast and have good combinations up front.
I cannot wait for the competition to start as I will be glued to a television to give full support to my national team.
Good luck – the whole nation is behind you.
– Richie Piyose, Bafana Bafana
