Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana striker Tokelo Rantie is a doubtful starter for the clash against Morocco on Sunday after he sat out of the squad's training session on Friday.

Rantie twisted his ankle in Wednesday's 2-0 victory over Angola in their second match of the Africa Cup of Nations.

The striker watched on the sidelines in training alongside fellow striker Lehlohonolo Majoro, who will miss the clash due to an injury on his shin which he sustained in the same match against Angola.

"We anticipate that Majoro will be out for the next game because he had a deep cut on his shin which we had to stitch," said Bafana team doctor Carl Tabane after the team's training session.

"But he should be ready for the quarter-finals. Rantie twisted his ankle when we played Angola and we had to pull him out of training today because he is struggling a bit and is a doubtful starter.

"We will treat him today and see how it goes."

The good news on Friday was that Kagisho Dikgacoi and Lerato Chabangu had their first full training session and finished without any discomfort.

Both missed the match against Angola due to knee and groin injuries respectively.

"Dikgacoi took part in his second training session since we took him out of the Cape Verde match and is responding well to treatment," Tabane said.

"Chabangu also had a full session and we are not too worried about the duo.

"They should be fine for Sunday and it will be up to the coach whether he selects them on not."
