Bafana Bafana was dealt a devastating blow of news over the course of the week as it was announced that Dean Furman and Tebogo Langerman would be released from camp with injuries. However it seems that the supporters are happy, a replacement has been found and he is special.
The man to fill the shoes will be Mamelodi Sundowns star Tiyani Mabunda and the supporters are elated. The only criticism is that he wasn’t called up in the first place.
“That guy will take that place forever, Furman should be in worry now. The guy is perfect, indeed now I believe in our squad, we are going to Russia.” – LO. 11
“Applause to Shakes, this call-up is long overdue, not a Downs fan but this guy is good, he controls the tempo and he is powerful and does not waste balls as many holding midfielders do.” - makatsela
“This player is not a replacement type of player he should have been called from day one, he proved to be a good player since he came back to Sundowns after loan.” -mbixane
“Good replacement, he deserves it ,he has been a revelation for his team this season, one of the early candidates for footballer of the year.” - AS
“This one was written in the stars Tiyani should have been called from the start.” – Bucs - 10
Will Mabunda make all the difference for Bafana Bafana this weekend?
