‘KG’ fit for Bafana opener

Kagisho Dikgacoi recovers from knee injury

Posted: 17 January 2013 Time: 10:34 am

Kagisho Dikgacoi is available for selection when Bafana Bafana take on Cape Verde Islands in the opening game of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations on Saturday.

The Crystal Palace man has been troubled by a knee injury picked up during the goalless draw against Algeria at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, but Bafana team manager Levy Ramajoe says the midfielder has recovered after missing training earlier in the week.


“KG is back in full training with the rest of the squad,” Ramajoe tells KickOff.com. “Everyone is 100 per cent so we have a full squad to select from.”

I can't wait for KG combination with Furman, its the best ever that BB had. KG will be immobile while Furman will be making those defense spliting plasses to his defenders.

In Gordon's secret hand we have tactics.

KG is useless and Furman worse. That Furman thing is overrated. He only makes obvious passes and most of them are backward. He is not creative and therefore not Bafana material. Do u guys agree or disagree?

@ Gordon's 11 loyalists,

Personally, I wish that the injury to KG recuperates so that mediocrites will learn a lesson. KG is no longer the same player that once captured our imagination but he is the best defensively (even though immobile) in the team that GI selected. Imagine a middlefield that is manned by Furman & Yeye.

Furman is an overated piece of mediocrity. He can't tackle, command the middle let alone initiate attacks, he is our best useless player.

Yeye on the otherhand is suffers from bi-polar, he can't be trusted. The is no doubt that he can defend & attack but he is not too good at either of the 2. Today, he will attack well but when you tell him to attack well in the next game, he defends well. He is your street type soccer player that is not good for systimatic soccer which international soccer is all about. If some of you think I am wrong, why hasn't he mastered any of the roles at KC because every season they suffer from both at deferent times.

This combination will render Gordon's 11 useless in M.field & our defence will not cope with waves of attack. With Kaizer Idiots (Ryan Cooper) in majority on the stands, they will boo the wrong players such as Mphela because we will be few goals behind in 45 minutes.

A lot of people here are clueless about the duties of a modern defensive midfield player in the field of play.Its not surprising though,my fellow South Africans are so obsessed with their so called local football starts, it blinds their judgment.
Some of you are saying they have never seen what KG has done for BB but they did see the goal by Shabba in the opening game of WC.How ridiculous and naive?So the goal that Shabba scored that day came from heaven like manna,we've got loads and loads of clueless people here.

That's good news for bafana bachiefs, He will ensure an early exit for BB which in turn will save us from Zebras crying foul after the PSL refuses to postpone their game against downs

even if BB goes to the final, we still have very capabale players who can make the starting 11: khuzwayo - moleko, ritchie, mathoho, mashamaite - katsande, nkosi, lebese, dladla - rusike, nkhatha
and have all bafana bachiefs as subs....
