Cape Town - Itumeleng Khune’s understudy at Kaizer Chiefs, Brilliant Khuzwayo, has replaced the injured goalkeeper in the Bafana Bafana squad.

According to the official Twitter account for the South African national football team, Khune has been withdrawn and Khuzwayo has take up his place.

“Brilliant Khuzwayo has been called up to replace the injured Itumeleng Khune in the Bafana Bafana squad to face Angola,” said the Tweet.
