Injury red-cards Serero

2012-06-08 11:41

Bafana Bafana stand-in coach Steve Komphela has confirmed that forward Thulani Serero will not be available for the team’s crucial World Cup qualifier against Botswana in Gaborone tomorrow.

Serero limped off from training with a groin injury at the University of Botswana stadium today.

“I still need to get proper feedback,” Komphela said.

“I have not met with a doctor, but what I do know is it’s a problem with the groin.”

The coach, however, said all the other players in the squad were fit and ready for the match.

Earlier, Bafana began their final preparations ahead the match with a training session.

Bafana arrived in Botswana yesterday afternoon, with a number of interested local spectators in the stands.

The team went through their training routine in clear and warm conditions.
