In a few days, we will witness the start of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, hosted by Australia and New Zealand. Then on July 28, the Netball World Cup hosted by our African country for the first time ever, started in Cape Town.
We also have South African teams in the upcoming Rugby and Cricket World Cups which France and India will host respectively later this year.
First things first, let me remind our teams how important it is to wear those gold and green jerseys. That alone is an inspiration, pride and motivation – to represent the country’s population of over 60 million.
Go ahead and enjoy yourselves, but do it for us too because you are representing the country with confidence and dignity. We wish you nothing but all the best because you deserve to be in those international tournaments after qualifying to be part of the biggest sports matches in the world.
We are proud of you and wish you success.
Go, Baniana Banana, Poké and the Proteas Netball and Cricket Team. We’re behind you all the way.
