SAFA went on to extend their best wishes to Orlando Pirates as they keep flying the South African flag in continental football this weekend. This will be the first home for the Buccaneers and the club’s second match having started the Group Stages of the competition with a win against the formidable AC Leopards side.
“We would like to wish Orlando Pirates all the best in their CAF Confederations Cup against Zamalek” said SAFA President Dr Danny Jordaan. “Pirates made a brilliant start by beating AC Leopards away from home and another win over the Egyptian side would set them nicely to go all the way in the tournament” he added.
The Buccaners will host Egyptian giants Zamalek in their second group stage match of the CAF Confederations Cup at Mbombela Stadium on Saturday.
