To all those that always disagree when we say Orlando Pirates when playing in the CAF Champions League are representing South Africa its either they get emotional about the issue or they just hate the fact it’s Orlando Pirates.
Reasons why we say Orlando Pirates is representing South Africa:
1. By reaching the semifinal, Orlando Pirates has got enough points for the Premier Soccer League to be represented by 2 teams starting from the 2015 CAF Champions League season.
2.Orlando Pirates has brought back a bit of South African soccer pride by going this far and destroying some of the Giants of African football along the way e.g. TP Mazembe (Congo), Al Ahly and Zamalek both (Egypt), and Zanaco (Zambia).
You can deny it, be ignorant or whatever fact remains when Orlando Pirates just like Kaizer Chiefs when they play in the CAF Champions League they are representing South Africa and that's why you get ministers wish Pirates was Bafana Bafana I mean who can blame them.
Tunisia here we come!
