An unsung hero?

Dean Furman came under fire after Bafana's 1-0 loss to Cote 'd Ivoire -he was unreseverdly criticized by fans on social media for committing unnecessary fouls and making indecisive passes which resulted in giving away position.Leaving some of his cults wondering whether he should start ahead of Hlompho Kekana and Tiyani Mabunda or not.

During Bafana's exceptional performance against Egypt on Saturday, an ample of eyes were captivated by Bafana's unyielding attack on the Pharaohs.But a scant amount of Bafana Bafana fans paid homage to the ever-industrious Dean Furman, for his immense contribution in toppling the 7-time winners of the AFCON tournament.


Having suffered a knock in Bafana's opener against Cote 'd Ivoire,the valiant Dean Furman found his way again into the starting line-up; played superbly well in front of the back-four, blocked more shots(3) than any other player in the whole match and furthermore, scrambled to stop the Pharaohs in their tracks.Which somewhat gave the likes of Kamogelo Mokotjo and Bongani Zungu the opportunity, respectively,to keep position of the ball or venture forward.
