While veteran Springbok Victor Matfield supports coach Heyneke Meyer, he knows very little about his future beyond the World Cup.

South Africa narrowly lost to old rivals New Zealand in a titanic World Cup semi-final at Twickenham on Saturday. 

While Meyer still has at least one game to be in charge of the two-time world champions at the dreaded 3rd/4th place play-off against Argentina, his post-World Cup career remains a mystery.

"It's very difficult for me to say anything on the coach," said the 39-year-old, who is one of Meyer's most loyal supporters.

"You guys know how I feel about Heyneke and my belief in him.

"I think we've got great players here, I think if you look at the squad is a very young squad, with four or five old players but it's very young squad.

"You look at 10, 12, 13 and the locks that's here, so much talent.

"So I think a guy like Heyneke will love to keep working with these boys, that he picked us youngsters and hopefully they can win the next world cup for us."
