Majoro added to Bafana squad

2012-05-23 12:49

Rustenburg - Kaizer Chiefs striker Lehlohonolo Majoro has joined the Bafana Bafana squad in Rustenburg in place of Eleazar Rodgers.

Majoro linked up with the squad on Wednesday after Rodgers was released for National First Division playoff matches with club side Santos.

Majoro will link up with Bafana veteran Siyabonga Nomvethe to beef up the strike force in 2014 Soccer World Cup qualifiers against Ethiopia and Botswana in June.

Nomvethe, 34, said he was eager to return to the international stage after an absence of nearly two years.

“I have confidence on my side and I say we can do it,” Nomvethe said.

“We must not give up. We have good young players and we're going to make it, to score goals.

"We've got good, young, quality players here and they are expecting to do well too. The team will do well.”

    Well done. This guy Majoro is going to be one of the greats. Thinks on his feet. Shoots well with both feet. The complete footballer in my book, cant understand why he was overlooked in the first place.

      Maybe playing for a weak team makes him weak

    adding another under performer, wow Pitso is looking forward to less stress cos he wont have to stress about the world cup if he wont be going to any. Brian Habana should be added there, he might score more goals for them

    Overlooked again, Benni can do skill transfer to the strikers. U will keep on adding and adding over and over, again and again but we Bafana Bafana will always be on the learning curve.

    Again & again Benni is still the answer for BB...But I can see that Pitso doesnt want to loose his job because he knows that once BB qualify for the World Cup he is going to loose his and Bafana will apoint someone from outside to coach during world cup. But I really dont know what the guy (Benni) did to you.
