Elrio van Heerden saved the day for Bafana, South Africa


Unasuming, coming on as a sub, he saved the day for us, as we were heading for another defeat on the soccerfield. Elrio van Heerden, hailing from the Eastern Cape, made Bafana's fans smile as he netted an impressive long range shot of 25m, late in the second half. The game against Angola, was to set the pace for our Afcon campaign, but also World cup 2010. The hope is that talent like van Heerden be given the chance to show their mettle, hopefully helping Bafana to survive the group of death (Group D), possibly bringing the cup home. This is a long shot, of course, but why can't we dream ? Go boys !
