Majoro is raring to go

Lehlohonolo Majoro is looking forward to pulling on his Bafana Bafana kit again against Mali

Lehlohonolo Majoro is looking forward to pulling on his Bafana Bafana kit again as the Africa Nations Cup quarter-final against Mali edges closer.

The striker played no part in South Africa's 2-2 draw with Morocco after getting a deep cut on his shin during the triumph over Angola.

'Major' found the back of the net in that game before picking up the injury, and is now looking forward to making more of an impact for Bafana in the tournament following the removal of his stitches.

"Look, for me I am very excited to be training properly and being ready to play again especially since I thought I wouldn't play again in this Afcon. There's still a few tests I need to do before they can pass me 100 per cent fit, but I am feeling very good," he says.

The Kaizer Chiefs hitman is the only Bafana forward to have scored in this year's competition - defender Siyabonga Sangweni netted twice and midfielder May Mahlangu bagged a wonder goal. However, Majoro doesn't feel that this puts the strikers under pressure.

"It's not about individuals. We are all a team here. The strikers drop back and help to defend, and we have a defender scoring. It's all about the team and working together and we've been doing that very well.

"It was great to watch the match [against Morocco] from the bench and see everyone on the pitch fighting to get us to the next round. It is not about individual glory and one person looking to always make the difference; we must do it as a team."

Majoro could go straight into the starting line-up against Mali as Katlego Mphela is still trying to find his sharpness.

I really think that this is a game that we should approach with three midfileders in order to counter the strong midfield threat posed by Mali and to give more protection to that defence. As much as i think Dikgacoi is useless and immobile, if there ever was a game to utilise his physical presence, this is it. Time for Mphela to make way for Majoro and Serero to start. Behind the boys 100%

If we play as a team, create chances and punish them , hard work.
No more airial balls, at the moment we're not that good ,something I hope Gordon is also addressing with you boys.

Don't get carried away by Q-finals , the reality is we want to sing our national anthem in the Final . One match at the time ....

Good luck boys

Supporting Bafana Bafana is like believing that Jacob Zuma is the best president and the ANC is doing well for the people.
If there was no Pirates then it means i was going to be an unhappy person as far as football is concern.
GI will fail dismally.

And all of a sudden he supports Bafana Bafana beacuse Chiefs players are on the bench.
GI is not a racist.....

The KING of a character is a waste and a confused 49yr old man...

My only concern is the high balls that we're been playing and they're always ineffective upfront, since our striker Mphela is struggling. However I still think if we keep the ball on the ground ....guys like Rantie,Mahlangu and Serero always give our opponents a headache .
