Khumalo could get lucky break
Bafana Bafana defender Bongani Khumalo should make the bench at least for Tottenham Hotspur in their English FA Cup semifinal against Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday.
An injury crises at centre-half has left manager Harry Redknapp short of options, with only three players available to fill two positions.
Ledley King is a major doubt with his continual knee problems, while Michael Dawson and Younis Kaboul may be out for the rest of the season with knee complaints.
That leaves just William Gallas, veteran New Zealander Ryan Nelson and Khumalo as the fit centre-halves at the club.
Should he get some minutes on the pitch it will be a first appearance for Khumalo in a Tottenham shirt in one of their biggest games in many a season.
It would be slightyly ironic were he to do so, as Steven Pienaar, who would almost certainly have played some part for Spurs in this game had he not gone on loan to Everton, will miss The Toffees Merseyside derby semifinal on Saturday as he is cup-tied.
Pienaar played for Spurs in the third round against Cheltenham Town and therefore is unable to play for another club in the competition this season.
