'World Cup Will Benefit Youth Development' 18/05/04
Moroka Swallows captain and former Bafana Bafana international Goodman Mazibuko points out that South Africa's hosting of the 2010 World Cup will help to improve existing youth academies as well as establish new ones.

South Africa is a power house in the football world and this was proven by the country winning the right to host the World Cup in 2010, according to the birds skipper.

"The World Football Cup is the biggest sporting even after the Olympic Games and hosting it is not just something that can be achieved by any country," said Mazibuko.

"The best of the best are given the right to hosting this event which never had been a flop every time it is held and FIFA knew that South Africa are capable of continuing with the rich tradition of successful World Cups," said the very excited PSL campaigner.

He also said the announcement goes very well with the youth policy of the Birds and most of the South African teams who had invested in the youth.

"Teams like Swallows and many more in the country are already complimenting the SA 2010 World Cup by investing very much in the youngsters of this country and in six years time we will have quality players to choose from and hopefully we will keep the World Cup in South Africa," he said.

The former Free State Stars and Orlando Pirates hard-man said that every one was talking about winning the bid and this will make soccer grow not only in South Africa but in the whole region, where football is already the most popular sport.

"The growth of infrastructure from now onwards will mean that the country will have the best training facilities that will help up and coming players and I don't see anything stopping the soccer-mad youth from starting to challenge for their places in the Bafana Bafana squad in 2010," Mazibuko concluded.
