AFCON: Patrice Motsepe, Sundowns Credited For Bafana Bafana’s Win Against Morocco

South Africa’s “surprise” win against Morocco in the ongoing African Cup of Nations (AFCON) had fans and the Rainbow Nation generally conversing about what provoked the win.

Of course, Morocco has a strong team. But in their clash against South Africans, they couldn’t muster enough firepower to best Bafana Bafana on the pitch. The game ended 2 goals to nil, with victory for South Africa,

Well, many South Africans are of the view that Patrice Motsepe, a mining magnate and one of the wealthiest men in South Africa, was instrumental in Bafana’s win against the Moroccan side,

In a post on X, a fan of Bafana Bafana had pushed the narrative that Motsepe was the reason the South African side were able to beat their opponents. The verdict resonated with many South Africans, some of whom also pointed out that the local side Mamelodi Sundowns was just as instrumental to that victory.

Making it to the quarterfinal is especially significant for the South African side because the country’s soccer team almost always struggles at continental and world levels, unlike their ruby counterpart.

All eyes are now on Bagana to see what the outcome of their next match will be. A win will reverberate across the Rainbow Nation.
