In the Confederations Cup Final on Friday evening in Uyo, Nigeria, Pirates will face RS Berkane of Morocco.

Mngqithi is optimistic that the Mighty Buccaneers would win in Nigeria and return home with the continental crown.

"Having a South African team competing in that environment is really encouraging and should kindle a passion in all of us as South Africans."

"If we are patriotic enough, we must support and demonstrate that we believe one of our people has a possibility to conquer the continent in that space," Mngqithi added.

"They have done well, and we have no doubt they have the ability to win it," he added. "The confidence I have in Mandla (Ncikazi), Fadlu (Davids), and the confidence I have in the entire team suggests to me they are a team that has the ability to win it."

Meanwhile, former Nigerian National Team goalkeeper Williams Okpara has returned to Orlando Pirates' training ahead of tonight's CAF Confederations Cup final against RS Berkane in Nigeria.

In 1995, Okpara assisted Pirates in winning the Caf Champions League.
