My name is Simon Mashiane, a proud Mzansi man and pride myself with the Mszansi soccer culture.It is long overdue and the time to get rid of this Bafana name is now  because it doesnt make the national team players to feel proud,confident and patriotic when wearing the national jersey.Rugby and Cricket are named after our national symbols and we should do that to our soccer team and name them the BLUE CRANES. Nothing will stop them. Fly the BLUE CRANES fly.
