When Amaglug-glug head coach Owen Da Gama finalised his squad for the Rio Olympic Games, there were eyebrows raised at the inclusion of Kaizer Chiefs' Itumeleng Khune as some felt it was unfair to youngster Jody February, who had put in some fantastic displays to help the side qualify for the tournament. However, after the team's performance against Brazil, there were many words of praise for the 29-year-old.
"Those who questioned Khune's selection, I bet they're eating humble pie now. Itu is a phenomenon! But the coach needs to give Jody a chance in the next game and Khune should close the group stages." – show_time65
"Khune!!! Our saviour." – justicema
"Well done South Africa, actually Khune, you did an impressive job. You deserve a double pay!" – AB SPHAFreeman
"Khune this, Khune that! Now look what he did for the country." – MSANDROTIC
"Khune, keep on shining, boy!" – ayandamanando
