Bafana flying flag high - Mbalula



Sports minister Fikile Mbabula congratulated Bafana Bafana on Wednesday after the national soccer team secured their first win of the Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) tournament.

Hosts South Africa beat Angola 2-0 in Durban, climbing to the top of Group A, in their second match of the continental competition at a near-capacity Moses Mabhida Stadium.

"The team show commitment to winning and they are flying the flag high," said Mbalula, who had handed out the jerseys to the players before the match.

"We are proud of them and will continue supporting them for their upcoming games."

Bafana Bafana, who had drawn 0-0 against Cape Verde Islands in the tournament opener on Saturday, face Morocco in their final match of the group stages in Durban on Sunday.
