WORLD CUP WISHES FROM SOUTH AFRICA

Government is pleased at the number of African teams that will contest the FIFA World Cup and is confident that the teams will make the continent proud.

On behalf of the people of South Africa, government conveys its best wishes for a successful 2014 FIFA World Cup to the Government and people of Brazil.

Deputy CEO of GCIS Nebo Legoabe said, “On behalf of the Government and people of South Africa, we wish Brazil all of the best. Football has the ability to unite people from different cultures and backgrounds. It is our hope that, just as we experienced this in 2010, a deep sense of pride and confidence will sweep over Brazil, as the world experiences its rich culture and vibrancy, and its hosting of this major event.”

“Africa’s participation in major sporting events is gaining momentum, and we will be supporting our continental teams,” said Legoabe.

Government encourages Brazilians to enjoy the tournament and the lasting benefits that will be in place after the event.

“Government also invites South Africans to use this occasion to reflect on the success with which our country hosted this event four years ago this week; we must hold onto this legacy as we move South Africa forward in the years to come,” said Legoabe.
