SAFA President, Dr Danny Jordaan immediately sent a congratulatory message to South Africa’s U23 squad in Senegal.
“This has been an extraordinary year for our national teams,” said the SAFA President.
Jordaan rushed from the SAFA Congress at the Sandton Convention Centre to see the boys seal yet another place for South Africa at the 2016 Rio Olympics after Banyana Banyana.
“This has been some year for our national teams starting from Bafana Bafana, U23, Banyana Banyana, U20 (Amajita), U17 (Amajimbos) and our U20 women’s national team which just missed next year’s World Cup finals in Papua Guinea on the very last match,” he added in a public statement of national pride.
“Now, everyone can see what we mean by Vision 2022 when it comes to preparing winning teams both on the continent and globally,” Jordaan concluded.
