Safa president Danny Jordaan has hailed the body’s Vision 2022 and says he proud to be sending two football teams to the Olympics.
The men’s U23 side and Banyana Banyana will be competing in Rio next month.
And that means that South Africa is the only African country to achieve that double and one of only three nations worldwide.
Jordaan says: “To those who thought Vision 2022 was another talk shop, results of our national teams are there for all to see.
“Our aim is not only to dominate African football but to be a major powerhouse on the globe in few years to come.
“We are the only country sending two football teams to the Olympics from the African continent and one of the few in the world to do so.
“And with the amount of resources we poured to prepare the two teams, we might surprise a few at the Olympics.”
“Our blueprint as the Association is to make sure that all our national teams are constantly among the top 3 in Africa and top 20 in the world; that is what we aim to achieve, come 2022.”
