Prisoners beat Police & Afcon Special

South African sports has gone through the most in the sporting world this month, can Bafana Bafana bring some respite? Their Africa Cup of Nations tournament did not get off to the best possible start, losing 1-0 to Ivory Coast on Monday but there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.

We chat to Tiso Blackstar's digital sports journalist Marc Strydom, who is in Egypt for the Afcon tournament, about South Africa's chances in the tournament. He gives us the lowdown and the rundown of Stuart Baxter's team.

South Africa came into the tournament packing quite some fire power in attack, with the likes of Percy Tau, Lebo Mothiba and Lars Veldwijk, plus a collective of creative midfielders such as Themba Zwane, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Lebogang Maboe.

They will face the likes of Wilfried Bony, Wilfried Zaha, Nicholas Pepe (all Ivory Coast) and Hakim Ziyech from Morocco as they try to navigate their way out of Group D.

Marc also give us an update from Egypt after the game and makes a grand prediction regarding Ronwen Williams possibly unseating Itumeleng Khune as "Mzansi's No 1". We will see if that pans out.

We also chat about the Marc Strydom story on the team of prisoners from Helderstroom Prison near Caldeon in the Western Cape and how in the world this happened. The team of prisoners won the Overberg Regional League, beating Police FC along the way. Apparently the team of prisoners were the best behaved in the entire league and had the best disciplinary record. Talk about rehabilitation!

Also, we look at the upcoming Craven Week starting in Bloemfontein on July 1st, profiling the surprised package from last year, Border.
