One can just imagine the way Brighton Mhlongo's palms are sweating right now as he sits in Durban and waits for his big moment. He has been given a chance to shine for Bafana Bafana against Ghana, and he has some big gloves to fill. Do the supporters think he can do the job?
It seems the supporters are split on the matter. Mainly because Itumeleng Khune had such a stellar game against Burkina Faso in the recent World Cup qualifier.
Now, Mhlongo has been given a chance to step up to the plate, his first start in a Bafana jersey almost has to be be nothing short of sublime.
