An influential player for the national team this year, for example, has been Teko Modise, but the Orlando Pirates playmaker has never been tested on this big a stage and at times appeared overwhelmed. He grew in strength at the end, though, and will look to improve as the competition progresses. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
