Bafana BafanaHave heard the South African fans saying it loads, but, no idea what it means.I know people hate these type of thread titles that don't put the info into the actual title, but, I would if it were swearing.
isn't it the SA's team name or something?I'm sure it's not a swear word.
Possibly the Affricanz (sp?) name for them then.Mind you you're probably right re not a swear word as surely the tv would bleep it out.
I think it just means 'Boys Boys', ie our lads
It's the affectionate term for the National football team of SA, I believe.
have heard the same as JustKeepSwimming.
Yes from Wiki:The most popular sport among black South African men is soccer, with the national team being nicknamed Bafana Bafana (meaning 'The Boys')
It means "the boys the boys" and is the nickname of the team. They did well the boys, I'm so proud
Thanks guys Yes Abs, they did do well.Knocked the French out.
