Majoro looking forward to Mali clash



South Africa’s second goal scorer in their 2-0 win over Angola in the Africa Cup of Nations Group phase, Lehlohonolo Majoro, says he has recovered from injury and ready to give it a go.

Speaking at the South African team’s training session next to Moses Mabhida Stadium, the venue for Saturday’s quarterfinal with Mali, ‘Major’ was in a positive mood.

“I must say that I have recovered from the injury. There are still some tests I have to go through to be declared 100% fit for the game but I want to give it a go,” Majoro said.

“I am obviously excited to be back because I thought that maybe I would be out for the whole tournament. So it just shows that the healing process in me is as good as I ever thought.”

Asked what it meant to him that he was the only forward in the Bafana set up to have found the back of the net thus far, Majoro said: “It is always good for a striker to score goals, because the more you score the more you gain confidence.

“For me to score that goal did a lot for my confidence and to see the way my teammates are performing really helps a lot too.

“But there is so much competition in the squad and there is no guarantee who is going to play. So come Saturday against Mali we will have to wait and see. But I have full confidence that we will do well in this next game.

“It’s not all about the strikers scoring goals because it is a team effort. If we have defenders scoring goals that is fine because we, as strikers, also help them to defend.”

Bafana Bafana face Mali at 20h30 at Moses Mabida Stadium on Saturday night.
