Portsmouth FC's Aaron Mokoena, captain of South Africa, shows his support for the IANSA Gun-Free World Cup campaign (iansa.org/worldcup).
"When I was growing up playing football, I always dreamed about playing for Bafana Bafana. To play for my country and be captain, particularly when the World Cup is being hosted on African soil, is a real honour. This is an opportunity to demonstrate to the world the beauty and diversity of our country. So let's be a united Africa and ensure that our country is safe. Let's support a gun-free World Cup." The T-shirt, designed by Katharine Hamnett, is available from the iansa.org/worldcup
