thumbnail Hello,

R1 million – that’s the motivation for Bafana Bafana to go for goals at the 2010 World Cup.

Bafana Bafana are being given the incentive of a R1 million bonus for each goal they net at the World Cup, which gets underway in 36 days.
The South Africans have been woefully short of goals in the last few years, netting just 32 in their last 34 matches.

It was a problem even highlighted by FIFA president Sepp Blatter – and one which SAFA is keen to solve by offering the cash incentives for the players to share.

“We want our team to play with pride and passion, we want to inspire them,” SAFA CEO Leslie Sedibe was quoted as saying by Reuters.

However, Sedibe adds that the perennial problem of player payment for the tournament has not yet been finalised, and that the mother body must still hold talks with the six-man players’ committee headed by captain Aaron Mokoena.

No trip to South Africa is complete without a visit to its most beautiful and sunniest city. Durban offers much more than sandy beaches, safaris, casinos and the World Cup, for information on what to do and see, please click here
