Bafana Bafana number one goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has reflected on the past week when he risked aggravating his injury to play with a mask in the crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier against Senegal on Friday, 10 November at Peter Mokaba Stadium.
After sustaining a facial injury during the Telkom match against Chippa United on Sunday, a day before reporting for camp, Khune said despite the setback he was determined to defy the odds and do everything for his country.
The medical team put Khune through an intensive rehabilitation process during the week in camp and the inspirational goalkeeper responded well and was named captain on the day.
Here what Khune had to say here:
Euro 2016 quarter finalists, Iceland became the smallest country ever to advance to the FIFA World Cup finals. Iceland qualified for the world cup for the first time ever after a 2-0 win over Kosovo , while Serbia clinched a spot at next year’s finals with a 1-0 win over Georgia..
Mexico beat Panama 1:0 at home to become the first CONCACAF side to qualify for the FIFA 2018 World Cup, Russia on Friday, thanks to the substitute Hirving Lozano’s 54th minute goal.
