Khune: Best is yet to come

2010-08-12 12:11

Johannesburg - Itumeleng Khune believes the best is yet to come from Bafana Bafana after they beat Ghana 1-0 at FNB Stadium on Wednesday evening.

The Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper kept a clean sheet after returning from a one-match suspension, which saw him miss out on South Africa's final World Cup game against France.

Although the 23-year-old was rarely challenged, he was pleased with his performance.

"It was a good feeling to be back in the team and also to keep a clean sheet," Khune told the Chiefs official website.

"We played well last night and we were very organized at the back. It is important that we build from this performance."

South Africa now face a gruelling African Nations Cup qualifying campaign and they will have to overcome Niger, Sierra Leone and Egypt if they are to book their place amongst Africa's elite.

"The qualifiers are going to be tougher but we will be ready," he added

Khune praised head coach Pitso Mosimane for the role he has played since taking charge.

"It is good that there has been continuity in the coaching department and the Coach did not make many changes on how we play," he added.

"He encouraged us to continue with the way we have been doing under the previous coach.

"This has brought stability in the team."

    @I DON'T CARE, I think you are just a bitter piece that should have emigrated to Asstralia or NZ long ago. Unlike cricket, rugby, etc participation of players at national level in soccer has never been racially based. Exclusion has been by choice hence same stck applying to transformation in cricket, rugby, etc cannot be applied to soccer. If Gatsonderwater Seuns Hoerskool has facilities for soccer and none choose to play it, that cannot be equated to a school in township where there's kids willing to play cricket and end up putting up boxes of tomatoes as wickets during interschool games.

    what transformation are you on about- i dont think you know what you know your soccer - there are a lot of players who are not black in soccer; now and post 94 - where was transformation in soccer during apartheid? No white person was crying out to play soccer, i recall that a lot of us black were fighting to be apart of the cricket, rugbys and so forth. you ignorant person!

    I think they is transformation in soccer it just that a particular race is more represented then other's .just like in rugby .Not many Black South African are good in rugby so that it why you find a small number of them, so as South African Indains.I think the likes of BOOTH , PACKER, Mc CARTHY, PIENAAR, ROWAN FANANDERS the old legend MARK FISH, Eric Tinckle , Zain Moosa ,Andrea Arence ,Peer Easer the list is end less if you have been following soccer you woud have notice that it started long before 2010......It people like you who let Southe Africa down .....TRANSFORMATION IS HERE SO FEEL IT.............. WELL DONE BAFANA BAFANA YOU MADE US PROUD. Anywhere this is a SHARK Supporter!......

    well done boys kip it up!

  • Birdman - 2010-08-13 09:59

    We've just beated Ghana folks! They the ones who made it to the next round in the SWC (and could have made it to the quarters if they knew how to take a penalty)! - and we didn't. This is great!! Stop whining and looking for fault. Winning is winning. It helps everyone get behind the team for sure! Just look at what's happened to the Boks after 3 losses in a row - in everyone's eyes they're now crap! Everyone is blaming everyone else. The coach is crap, the players are crap and it never ends! A winning national team is good for the countrys moral. So let's feast on this Bafana win for as long as we can - all you negative people out there - take a hike!
