KG disappointed to miss Bafana match

The Crystal Palace midfielder had been due to link up with Pitso Mosimane's side for the match against The Stallions but his current application for a new work permit in the UK meant he could not take the risk of not being allowed to return.   "My biometric card(visa) went with my work permit application and is still not back," 'KG' explains to KickOff.com.   "I was going to get stuck in SA after the game and I couldn't just come without it. I would have loved to have played but it's something that is beyond my control. It's absolutely annoying as but such things happen and would like to wish the team the very best of luck for the match."   Dikgacoi is the latest withdrawal from the Bafana squad after confirmation that captain Steven Pienaar, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Anele Ngcongca will not feature. The former Golden Arrows will instead prepare for Palace's first home match of the season in the Championship on Saturday against Burnley, although recent riots in nearby Croydon mean that could still be postponed.
