Even after losing all three of their Women's World Cup games, this South African national team is still appreciated

We remember when Bafana Bafana returned home after picking up a 0-0 draw away in Seychelles during their Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign. 

The airport was very quiet when receiving the men's national team last year, and one wondered what type of reception Banyana Banyana would receive on Wednesday.

Banyana were embarrassed 4-0 against Germany in their last World Cup game on Monday, crashing out in the group stage.

Before that they lost 1-0 to China and 3-1 to Spain. Nevertheless, the true supporters of Banyana showed up at the airport and what a welcome it was!

When supporters turn up in their numbers after a victory, it is amazing, but when they do so after defeat then it is even more impressive.
