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.
