This is the first appearance for South Africa in the World Cup finals.

In 1996 they won the African Nations Cup, at the first attempt, even if it was held in the Republic.

Politics and sport shouldn't mix, but sadly they do have their knock-on effects. Because of the Apartheid system, South Africa had to wait until 1992 to join the International sporting community again.

South Africa the country.
