A Brief History of Bafana Bafana

South Africa's national football team, known as Bafana Bafana ("The Boys"), has a relatively short international history. That's because the first team to represent all South Africans only played its first match in 1992 – two years before the country's first democratic elections. Bafana's first match was played in Durban, against Cameroon, on 7 July 1992. It proved to be a strong debut against one of Africa's leading teams, which had made the quarterfinals of the Fifa World Cup only two years previously. Mid-fielder, Doctor Khumalo scored the game's only goal to give South Africa a 1-0 win. Despite that victory over the Indomitable Lions, the effects of isolation soon showed as South Africa failed to qualify for the 1994 Africa Cup of Nations after suffering four defeats in succession. Two years later, however, Bafana Bafana's place at the Africa Cup of Nations finals was assured when the country hosted the tournament. Under coach Clive Barker, the national team rose to the occasion. In front of a crowd of 80 000 at the FNB Stadium, Neil Tovey's men beat the Tunisians 2-0 in the Afcon final, with Mark Williams netting both goals.
