"I have no doubt he will have a good tournament because he is a good player. We always knew this was on the horizon and that we were going to lose him, which doesn`t make it any easier from our perspective, but thankfully we are winning games without him."

Bafana vs Algeria will be televised on SS 4 and SABC 1, with the match starting at 21h00 local time.
