Majoro Fit For Quarterfinal

Lehlohonolo Majoro has been deemed fit for Saturday’s Africa Cup of Nations quarterfinal clash against Mali, and will be available for selection.

The striker sat out of Bafana Bafana’s final group stage game against Morocco, due to a shin injury, and was unable to contribute to the team’s 2-2 draw which saw them finish at the top of Group A and advance to the knockout stages.

 

However, coach Gordon Igesund will be without defender Anele Ngcongca for the fixture at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban. His exclusion could see Siboniso Gaxa receive a call-up to the starting line-up.

 

“Everything happens for a reason. Anele is not available for our next match, Gaxa has been working hard at training and now his opportunity has arrived.  Maybe he is the right player for this match; even if Anele was available I think I would have used Gaxa. I think things were meant to happen this way,” Igesund told SAFA.

 

“We are two games away from the final, the players understand where we are and we all know there is a huge challenge that lies ahead of us. We know what we have to do. When you get this far in any competition, you are self motivated but at the same time it gets tougher. Mali is a very talented team with very hard working players.

 

“They play differently to most teams we have faced; they like to slow things down. They knock the ball around and are very comfortable on the ball, but then again there are no easy games in the quarterfinals,” added Igesund.
