Bafana Bafana captain Itumeleng Khune is doubtful for the crucial CHAN group match against Nigeria on Sunday, after suffering an injury to his ankle.
Khune took a knock in the match against Mali and went for a scan this week where he was told by doctors it would take a few days to recover.
Bafana Bafana’s official twitter account tweeted on Friday night that Khune is doubtful for the game.
A final decision on whether or not he will play will be made on Saturday morning, but Igesund is unlikely to risk Khune if it is still troubling him.
Bafana may have to call upon Wits’ experienced minder Moeneeb Josephs for the vital game, with uncapped Platinum Stars keeper Siyabonga Mpontshane the other option.
