Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana striker Lehlohonolo Majoro will take part in the final 2015 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying clash against Nigeria on Wednesday after recovering from an ankle injury which kept him out of the game against Sudan last weekend.

Bafana spokesperson Matlhomola Morake confirmed to Sport24 in an exclusive interview on Monday that the Orlando Pirates forward was only ruled out of the Sudan clash while nursing his injury.

"Lehlohonolo Majoro has recovered from an ankle injury,"" Morake told Sport24.

"He was only ruled out of the game against Sudan, not both games.

""He is fit to travel with the team now and he was also training with us this morning (Monday).

"So he will take part in the trip to Nigeria and we are leaving this afternoon."

Bafana will face the Super Eagles at the newly built Uyo International stadium on Wednesday evening.

Kick-off is at 19:00 (SA Time).
