    Nuova muta per i Bafana bafana

      Mentre l’Italia penserà ad assicurarsi la qualificazione ai mondiali 2010 nei prossimi match contro Serbia e Montenegro, anche la nazionale sudafricana si appresta a tornare in campo per due gare amichevoli contro Norvegia e  Portogallo. L’allenatore Santana ha reso note le convocazioni, affermando che dai 23 uomini scelti in questa occasione uscirà l’80 per cento della formaizone che sarà chiamata alla Confederation cup di giugno; alcuni ritocchi sarano possibili dopo le prossime gare, per una formazione che, al momento, secondo Santana è “la più dura di sempre”. Intanto i “Bafana bafana” hanno anche una nuova maglia ufficiale: la divisa titolare, che già fa discutere, sarà verde con pantaloncini gialli.
