After Bafana Bafana's group was revealed here's how the local media and the Premier Soccer League reacted.
Even Orlando Pirates coach Milutin Sredojević is excitedly looking forward to the tournament.
So this means that there are no legends from Southern Africa? What kind of insult and mockery is this?@CAF_Online@DylsMapfy @Chakariboy @robertmarawa @mikemadoda @larry_moyo @kwirirayi pic.twitter.com/O9Zl2xvB3f— King George (@damsongeorge) April 12, 2019

Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would be watching an AFCON draw & know that I would actually be apart of it. Crazy, scary feeling. So grateful that it’s apart of my story as a coach. Surreal. @BafanaBafana @CAF_Online @SAFA_net #dreamscometrue #football #southafrica ⚽️— Joshua Smith MSc (@josh_smith_RSA) April 12, 2019
Love how some people are asking questions about the target audience for the new Lion King like it wasn’t made specifically for us…— Joe Crann (@YesWeCrann) April 11, 2019
It’s not for children, it’s a reward for everyone who already knows Hakuna Matata.

If Bafana beat Namibia by a high score like how they did in Egypt in 1998 with @bennimccarthy17, then South Africa has a chance to make goal difference count for at least one of the better 3rd spot finishers. Need at least a draw in one of the other games to progress #Afcondraw— Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) April 12, 2019

I'm more scared for South Africa. I think Morocco are in their comfortable zone (North) They've got great defence too. https://t.co/Gs0QyHNrns— Oluwatobi Ogunsakin (@tobiogunsakin) April 12, 2019
