Khune: Morocco Want Revenge

Itumeleng Khune has expressed his views on Bafana Bafana's game against Morocco tonight. The 26-year-old said that Morocco would likely be out for revenge after the two teams played out to a draw in the Afcon earlier this year.

He told the club's official website, "It is going to be an interesting game. We played to a 2-2 draw the last time we played against them, denying them a passage to the quarterfinals of the 2013 Orange Afcon. They will be looking for revenge especially in their own backyard."

The friendly this evening will see the inauguration of the new stadium in the southern city of Agadir. The stadium has been built for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations which is being hosted by the Atlas Lions.

Khune revealed what Morocco's mood is likely to be ahead of the clash.

"We are proud to be part of the inauguration of their new stadium. As hosts, they will be looking to impress their supporters. We know how it feels to play in front of your supporters defending the national colours," he added.

The Kaizer Chiefs stopper added that the game would be a good opportunity for some of Bafana Bafana's newer players to gain experience.

"We met the new players for the first time at camp. Some were nervous but as senior players we have a responsibility to calm their nerves and encourage them. This is the new era and a win will be good for our confidence leading up to CHAN in January", concluded Khune.
