Cape Town - Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter
believes Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma gained valuable knowledge
and experience during the national side's trip away to face Libya.
Bafana beat the Mediterranean Knights 2-1 last Sunday in Tunisia to
qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Egypt during June
While Bvuma did not take part in the match, Baxter takes the view
that experiencing the intensity of a high profile AFCON qualifying
training camp will serve him well in future.
Darren Keet proved to be the star in goal as he produced a top
performance to help the national team achieve the victory. Ronwen
Williams was number two on the bench for South Africa.
Baxter said: "I thought it was an excellent performance from Darren,
who is an excellent keeper and we had two excellent keepers.
"But we also had one Bruce, who was with us and gained immense
experience just from being involved in that event, which is exactly what
And Andre Arendse (Bafana's goalkeeper coach) had a good camp with
the goalkeeper, and Darren was a reflection of that work that was done."
The 23-year-old appears likely to start for the Glamour Boys when
they face Cape Town City on Sunday in a much anticipated Nedbank Cup
quarterfinal at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
