Vilakazi - The Man To Guide Bafana Past Algeria?

Sibusiso Vilakazi has shown his talent at Bafana Bafana, scoring crucial goals.

With the exclusion of the likes of Serero and Mahlangu, Vilakazi may be the man Bafana Bafana will have to look up to at the Africa Cup of Nations.

Vilakazi scored two crucial goals after coming on as a sub for Bafana against Sudan, in Sudan. He proved to be a super-sub and his double spearheaded Bafana's campaign to qualify for Afcon, as they started by taking three points away from home.

Vilakazi featured in other qualifying matches but was unfortunate to miss out on certain clashes due to injuries he sustained.

Vilakazi, who won PSL player of the season for the 2013-2014 campaign, showed that he is a very crucial man for Bafana Bafana especially when he comes from the bench. The other night against Cameroon, Vilakazi came on for Bernard Parker to score a crucial equaliser against one of the African giants.

His ability to score when the team needs goals the most will prove to be very crucial when the team faces Algeria. Algeria is a very strong team and will provide Bafana limited opportunities, just like Cameroon did.

A player as versatile as Vilakazi would be important in that first match of Afcon to help Bafana Bafana get a result, as the first game is always very important.

How crucial will Vilakazi be? Should he start the match or come on from the bench as a super-sub as he is effective that way?
