Bafana 'keeper Khune doubtful for Senegal clashes

Bafana 'keeper Khune doubtful for Senegal clashes”

Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune is entertaining thoughts of playing with a mask on his face as he pushes to be available for the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Senegal.

He will consult a specialist in Johannesburg on Monday for another opinion and could need surgery.

He underwent further scans on Monday to determine the extent of the injury but could be out for a period of between two to six weeks.

The 30-year-old broke the bone around his right eye as his Kaizer Chiefs side beat Chippa United 1-0 on Saturday.

Khune will also miss a second match against Senegal in Dakar on November 14, which South Africa must also win to reach the 2018 finals in Russian Federation. Khune had caught the ball just before Lentjies, who seemingly was unable to avoid the contact and clattered into Khune - pulling the goalkeeper by the neck in trying to break his own fall. "He will see a specialist regarding this and we will update you after", Chiefs confirmed on their official Twitter account.

But he will not be joining up with the Bafana Bafana squad as they begin preparations for the must win qualifiers.Bafana have to win both encounters to force an unlikely place at next year's finals in Russian Federation.

Goalkeeping frailties on the part of both Ronwen Williams and Wayne Sandilands left South Africa jittery at the back.

However he was beaten by two long range effort by Garry Rodrigues as Cape Verde snatched an upset win and beat South Africa for a second time in a matter of days and dealt a major blow to Bafana Bafana's hopes.
