Khune praises Bafana’s performance

2015-03-27 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Itumeleng Khune says that Bafana Bafana had an overall great shift against neighbours Swaziland.

Khune returned to the post for Bafana Bafana for the first time since his ankle injury, which kept him out of the Afcon qualification phase and the actual tournament in January.

Thabo Mnyamane scored on debut as Bafana Bafana eased past Swaziland 3-1 on Wednesday night.

Mnyamane added to Thulani Hlatshwayo’s opener after half time, before Mandla Masango added the third and final nail in the coffin as Bafana Bafana cruised past their hosts.

According to KickOff, Khune said that the game was more like a derby to them and getting the victory was a vital aspect of the encounter.

“We were disciplined throughout the first 45 [minutes], and it was a great performance overall,” said the shot-stopper.

“This was a big match — it was more like a derby for us — because this is our neighbouring country …”

Bafana’s next encounter is against Nigeria on Sunday, March 29 at the Mbombela Stadium.

Kickoff is at 3 pm.
