Pienaar commented on the importance of tournaments like the COPA Coca-Cola Global Cup, “It’s a great privilege to be part of such a tournament and the elite training session with all the u15 players. It’s important for players to participate in such tournaments for them to participate with different players and adapt to different environments, these kind of tournaments are once-in-a-lifetime experiences that these boys and girls will treasure forever.
