Cape Town - Bafana Bafana striker Thamsanqa Gabuza was injured in the team‘s 3-0 win over Mauritius on Saturday, but the news coming through is that the injury is not serious.

A SAFA official, who chose anonymity, told Sport24 that the Orlando Pirates striker was in pain and that's why he had to be taken off.

The official said that the team doctors were happy with the player after checking him after the game.

"No his injury is not as bad as it looked,” the official said.

“Yes he had a knock, but it was just at that moment that it looked bad, but after the ice treatment it showed that it wasn't bad at all. He is okay as we speak now."
