Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Reyaad Pieterse is doubtful for Sunday’s Cosafa Cup Final against Botswana at the Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek.
The new SuperSport United shot stopper injured his back during South Africa's 5-1 drubbing of Swaziland in Wednesday’s semi-final.
Pieterse’s teammate Jody February tells KickOff.com that he hopes the 24-year-old former Kaizer Chiefs goalie recover in time for the big clash against the Zebras.
“Reyaad has been performing well in this competition as well as during our training sessions.
“I really hope that he will pull through. The medical staff is assessing him and will probably make a final decision by tomorrow.
“Reyaad really deserves to be on the field as he has shown lots of professionalism and dedication. We have a good understanding and will always encourage each other.
“There is healthy competition between us and its keeps us on our toes. I'm keeping fingers crossed for him to recover in time” the Ajax Cape Town player concludes.
