We are officially a week into the Fifa 2010 Soccer World Cup. It’s been a week of massive highs (the opening ceremony and spirited Bafana Bafana performance in the opening game against Mexico) and one of extreme lows (The security guard and Rea Vaya strikes as well our heavy defeat at the hands of Uruguay). Being at the United We Shall Stand parade in Sandton just over a week ago and bearing witness to an amazing show by our rainbow nation in support of our boys it is hard to believe that it may all be coming to an end for Bafana Bafana. As our progression into the knockout stages of the tournament hangs in the balance I received an email today from Jabu Mabuza, the CEO of Tsogo Sun and chairman of Southern Sun Hotels that sums thing up beautifully. I thought I would share it with you. Let me know your thoughts on the letter.
It was with disappointment that we all witnessed the Bafana Bafana 3-0 loss last night. Not just the score-line, but more the possible consequences of the defeat.
