Proudly South African

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010

Who would have believed that Bafana Bafana would beat France 2 – 1? What an exceptional and exciting game!

It was amazing to see how much spirit and life Bafana Bafana invested in their World Cup 2010 effort. Even in last night’s final match against France they put up a real fight, they did not go quietly and they reminded our country men and women what it means to be South African.

We have never been prouder; thank you Bafana Bafana!

If you need something to pick you up and motivate you for the remainder of the 2010 World Cup we suggest that you watch this Power Point presentation from the guys over at Homecoming Revolution.
