Mkhalele challenges new Bafana Bafana players to write own history

Bafana Bafana assistant coach Helman Mkhalele has challenged the new players to write their own history. 


The national team will play a friendly international match against Uganda at Orlando Stadium on Thursday. 

Addressing the players on Tuesday after the afternoon training session, the former Bafana Bafana winger said the new players called up for national duty must have first and foremost a positive attitude.

“The first victory is in the mind. With a positive attitude, normally the rest will fall into place. Have a right mental attitude, communicate with your teammates more often and above all, believe.”

Mkhalele asked the newly assembled team to wear the Bafana Bafana jersey with pride, as they will be representing the 60 million plus South Africans.

‘’Not everyone has an opportunity to represent one’s country and when the opportunity avails itself, grab it with both hands and make yourself, your family and the country proud,’’ added Mkhalele.

The technical staff of Bafana Bafana regard the Uganda friendly match as the beginning of the rebuilding phase.

‘’You can notice that 80 percent of the players are new caps in addition to that we also lost 6 players to injuries and Covid-19. The rebuilding plan also include most of the u/23 players currently doing duty for the country in Egypt.”
