It is all systems go for Hugo Broos’ men after coming to an agreement with SAFA’s top brass in Stellenbosch on Sunday, 7 January.

According to President Jordaan, Bafana Bafana players will pocket a handsome R7 million in bonuses if they manage to win the competition – but could come home empty handed if they fail to do so.
