Bafana Bafana Confident they can Beat Ghana at Soccer City

Posted by KAY-EL On August - 10 - 2010

Bafana Bafana players and new coach Pitso Mosimane  are confident that they are going to beat the Black Stars of Ghana on Wednesday night in the international friendly at Soccer City.

Coach Pitso Mosimane is Confident

According to football365 Mosimane insists he is in a confident mood ahead of the showdown, despite stating that the Black Stars would provide a true reflection of how well Bafana have progressed.

“I am looking for continuity. We all know how good Ghana are. They were the best African side at the World Cup, but I believe we can beat them,” he said.

Teko Modise Wants to Pull off a Win

Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana midfielder Teko Modise has told the Siya crew that the team wants to pull off a win for in honour of the host nation, who contributed to the success of the tournament.

“We ended on a high note and we have to start on a high note as well. We have to do it for the nation that has always supported us. We also have to make sure we are continuing with our winning ways. We need to keep on doing well as we prepare for the qualifiers. It is good to always play well and win,”

Black Stars of Ghana have a Strong Team

Ghana have brought 12 of their World Cup stars, including goalkeeper Richard Kingson, captain and defensive hardman John Mensah, the classy young striker Andre Ayew, plus the impressive Kevin Prince Boateng who proved a handful for some of the best defenders in the World Cup, and will give Mokoena and company plenty to think about

Bafana Bafana vs the Black Stars of Ghana on 11 August at Soccer City should be a great match – or will it be a slaughter? Well all the supporters want to know is what Safa is doing with the tickets prices…

It was first announced on the SAFA website at the bottom of the page,  Coach Mosimane’s Vision 2014

According to the Safa Website : South Africa hosts Ghana at Soccer City on Wednesday the 11 th of August 2010. Kickoff is at 20h35 and tickets for the match go on sale on Friday 23 July at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. Tickets cost R50.00 all round.

Then now I saw on the that : There has been a whole misunderstanding, tickets will go on sale a week before the match….we were still trying to validate what the problem was.

This is all from my previous story on Vuvuzela South Africa.

And now I see from two sources, Senego and Africa: News Culture Sport (not from Safa) that the tickets are on sale already, for R100 each!

Bafana Bafana vs Black Stars Tickets Available at Computicket

“The tickets became available yesterday (Friday) at Computicket and according to SAFA communications director Morio Senyane, tickets are selling at R100 each.

Speaking in a media briefing in Johannesburg on Friday, Senyane urged soccer lovers to rush to buy tickets as early as possible and keep the spirit of the recent World Cup going.

“After an hour we had already sold about 250 tickets and only urge the media to help in terms of promoting the match between Bafana Bafana and Ghana at the Soccer City on August 11.”

No Website for Bafana?

Well how on earth is the media going to help promote the game and the tickets if SAFA doesn’t put a media release on their website or keep us informed?

And while we are talking about it – why doesn’t the South African National Football Team have a website? There is so much money in soccer, surely part of Bafana Bafana’s campaign must be a marketing and publicity one?

The supporters want to know, demand to know – why is there a discrepancy between the ticket prices? To pay 100 % more for a Bafana Bafana Black Stars ticket is a lot of money.

See you at Soccer City on 11 August.

WEll it seems as if there is a complication with the matter of the ticket sales for the friendly between South Africa and Ghana on 11 August at Soccer City.

According to the Safa Website : South Africa hosts Ghana at Soccer City on Wednesday the 11 th of August 2010. Kickoff is at 20h35 and tickets for the match go on sale on Friday 23 July at Computicket and Shoprite Checkers stores. Tickets cost R50.00 all round.

But now I see on the that : There has been a whole misunderstanding, tickets will go on sale a week before the match….we were still trying to validate what the problem was.

Ticket Sales

So Bafana Bafana Supporters in particular, and soccer fans in general, watch this space and we’ll try to keep you informed when SAFA or whoever get their act together get the right information out to the loyal supporters who want to plan their lives and who really would like to come to the game to watch the Black Eagles take on Bafana Bafana.

Quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup

Posted by KAY-EL On June - 30 - 2010

Its the quarterfinals of the 2010 World Cup, and we are getting to the most exciting matches, but we are also almost getting to the end.

It seems like forever that all we could talk about was 2010. And now we have seven more matches and then it is over.

Eight teams have qualified for the 2010 FIFA World Cup Quarterfinals. They are Brazil, Netherlands, Spain, Paraguay, Ghana, Uruguay, Argentina, and Germany.

Four South American Teams
These Quarterfinals have brought us an interesting mix of teams – four South American teams, none of them playing each other and of course the Black Stars of Ghana who are carrying Africa’s hope on their young shoulders. “Old Europe” is well represented by Germany and the Netherlands and the Spain has always looked as if they might just hold up the trophy.

But its the two South Americans Brazil and Argentina who are certainly two of the favourites  with Paraguay a wide outsider.

Amajita to face Black Satellites in Under -20 World Cup

Posted by KAY-EL On October - 5 - 2009

Ghana and South Africa will face off for the third time this year in a second round knockout match at the Under-20 World Cup on Tuesday.

Amajita into Knockout for Under-20 World Cup

South Africa’s Amajita are into the knockout stage of the Under-20 World Cup for the first time,

The Black Satellites of Ghana topped Group D after two wins against Uzbekistan and England and a draw against Uruguay, while South Africa finished third in their group after a well-deserved 2-0 win over Honduras on Saturday thanks to goals from Andile Jali and Sibusiso Khumalo.

According to the Safa website, Coach Serame Letsoaka says he is happy with a win but would have been much happier if the team had scored more goals considering the fact that the team created a lot of goal-scoring opportunities.
