Mosimane finally confirmed as new SAfrica coach

Pitso Mosimane has been confirmed as South Africa's new national team coach following a complex process carried out by the South African Football Association.
SAFA finally announced Bafana Bafana's assistant coach as the successor to Brazilian Carlos Alberto Parreira on Thursday, exactly two weeks after SAFA said Mosimane was the man it wanted but that he had to be approved by SAFA's own technical committee.
The 45-year-old Mosimane has been assistant coach since 2006 and was Parreira's understudy during the World Cup.
South Africa's first post-World Cup friendly, against an unconfirmed opponent, is set for August 11.
It begins its qualifying campaign for the 2012 African Cup of Nations with a home game against Niger in early September.
