Bafana training schedule outlined

Posted: 30 October 2009 Time: 07:29

Safa have confirmed that Bafana Bafana will train at Granja Comary, Brazil’s national soccer training centre in Teresopolois during March.

The South Africans, who are due at the high altitude training centre nestling among the mountains on March 6, will hold three other training camps, including one in Germany in April, before the World Cup kicks off.   According to a statement released by Safa arrangements were made before the appointment of Carlos Alberto Parreira as coach last Friday.   South Africa will train at home first before moving to Brazil for four weeks from and then go to Germany for a camp from April 13-28. The team will be based in Herzogenaurach in Germany.   A final training camp will start on May 6 before the World Cup kicks off on June 11, Safa added.   The team has four international warm-up games fixed over the next six months with matches against Japan (November 14), Jamaica (November 17) and away games in Chile (March 3) and Jamaica (April 10).   Negotiations are underway with North and South Korea for possible friendly internationals in January and with Argentina, Costa Rica and Paraguay for games in March.

You can train in Brazil but you will never play like them. Who knows? Our next move would probably be to grant citizenship to Brazilian players so that they can play for Bafana.

As a patriotic Mzanzian, am very optimistic that we'll do well in the WC. Many of the teams we playing in the friendlies, we'll probably meet them in the WC matches on a competitive basis. I know most of them will field their development teams abnd perhaps beat us with that probably, but thats wqhere their folly will be. Come WC match day, they will not know what hit them. If we could play some of the best squads like Brazil and Spain and come within a whisker of beating them, and mind you, our squad then didn't undergo intensive training and the guys certainly didn't each other. I mean, from February to just before the WC, the boys will breathe, eat, sleep, dream soccer. The type of training that none of the previous squads have received before, and I guess psychologist, sport scientists will be enlisted to help, ladies and gentlemen, this team that will come out of that pressure cooker will be ready to take on anyone and many future hosting countries will take a leaf out of our book. You can quote me on that if you can. And KO, you can reprint this comment after the WC games. I say this because I honestly believe we will go far and surprise all and sundry. Who dares undermine us will do that at their own peril, mark my words.....

I think we need the inputs of Steve Mokone in our football(SAFA), Jomo's voice has faded, the more money he's made, the more he became more like Kaizer, (comfortable)
we need someone who is fresh, Nemathandane is another Jordan, will do everything according to book, he does not know anything about the emotions of FB, and that will be his downfall,

And you wonder how the caucasians colonised Africa. We have morons for leaders. I guess we deserve them though. I mean, if you don't make your own base your fortress, how do you think you'll excell at another people's soil?
All other countries are setting base here just before the world cup. To acclimatise and horn their skills.
Safa goes to a high altitude country and then to a country whose season will be summer. Coming back to a low altitude & cold season.
My two old son is by far the smartest against these idiots. They just want to go see semi-nude women in bikinis in Brazil. That's all. Brainless idiots!
