House Chairperson, I move without notice:
That the House -
1) notes with great delight that Bafana Bafana astounded the Brazilian national soccer team with their outstanding performance this past weekend;
2) further notes with appreciation that Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune was given a standing ovation by the Brazilian spectators, who chanted his name in the stands in So Paulo after his excellent performance in Bafana's narrow 1-0 defeat to the home team;
3) recalls that the Brazilian supporters went as far as booing their own team while cheering Bafana, who outplayed their more illustrious opponents for the greater part of the game;
4) congratulates new coach, Gordon Igesund, for inspiring our national team to play brilliant soccer in his first match as Bafana coach; and
5) calls on all soccer-loving men and women to rally behind our new coach and the new look Bafana Bafana, which is promising to make us all proud in both the Confederations Cup and the 2014 Soccer World Cup that will be held in Brazil.
