Khune to train with a mask ahead of Senegal clash”

South Africa's Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune looks set to face Senegal in crucial back-to-back 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after a facial specialist assessed his eye-socket injury as "not too serious."Team manager Barney Kujani confirmed on Wednesday that the injury would only need a few days to heal, with Khune likely to be available for selection to play against the Lions of Teranga on Friday in South Africa".

South Africa takes on Senegal in a FIFA World Cup qualifier on Friday, 10 November 2017 at Peter Mokaba Stadium knowing they need to win the remaining two games to book a ticket to Russian Federation 2018.

The Friday match kicks off at 17:00 GMT at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.

The Amakhosi keeper impressed in the previous 3-1 win over Burkina Faso, having missed the back-to-back defeats to Cape Verde with a chest infection as Ronwen Williams and Wayne Sandilands failed to convince in goal.

"Lots of players have done it in the past, some players have worn skull caps when they have had concussion and some have played with masks".

"He's a mature player and he knows the level that's demanded of a goalkeeper of Bafana Bafana and he knows the importance of the game".

"I think also we've got a great crop of players at the moment, some young and exciting".

The attack led by Percy Tau, Sibusiso Vilakazi and Themba Zwane that put the Burkinabe to shreds could be tasked to do the same on Friday evening.

"Itu‚ we are more hopeful..."
