Bafana will surprise many
Johannesburg - Suspended Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune believes South Africa and the world are in for a surprise when the national team takes on France in their last Group A game in the FIFA World Cup.
He says despite being suspended for the game, he has been training with the team because the players need each other now more than ever.
“It will be a surprise to many because after losing against Uruguay people think we cannot go beyond the first round, but let me tell you, we will beat France and qualify for the round of 16.
“Our aim has been to reach the semi-final and that spirit is still there amongst the players. As a team we are capable of doing much better than we have done and we want to do that against France,” said Khune.
The Kaizer Chiefs goal minder added that Moeneeb Josephs will be good between the sticks.
“He is a very good goalkeeper. He has done a good job before and he will do it again against France,” Khune said.
