Recently Bafana Bafana fans have been concerned about the upcoming FIFA World Cup, worrying about how the team will perform. However, towards the end of 2008, Bafana finally redeemed themselves, winning five games in a row and playing an exciting display of football that made soccer supporters sit up and take notice.They beat Equatorial Guinea, Malawi, Ghana, Cameroon and Zambia in successive games, and those matches gave the South African soccer public hope that perhaps South Africa were on the right track.
However, the real test for the national team will be when they play in the Confederations Cup in June where they will meet Iraq, Spain, and New Zealand in the group stages. Bafana Bafana will also soon be taking on Norway, Chile and Portugal in preparations for the Confederations.
