Football is coming home. South Africa will the 2017 African Nations Cup tournament, after hosting the successful 2010 FIFA World Cup and still hope to host 2014 FIFA World Club Championship as well as the FIFA U-20 Youth and FIFA Women U-20 tournaments. Bidding is one thing and hosting, another.

The real deal is that Orlando Pirates are the top team in the ABSA Premier League after a 2-0 victory over Free State Stars at Botshabelo Stadium.The Happy People were made happy by speedy Tlou Segolela in the first half. Andile Jali scored the second late in the second half.

Kaizer Chiefs had a comfortable 3-1 win courtesy of Siphiwe Tshabalala who scored twice, after having spent days overseas hunting for English football contracts. Chiefs moved to 2nd behind The Sea Robbers with this win over Maritzburg United at the FNB Stadium.
