Bafana survive Mokoena injury scare


Mokoena, who has assumed a new role in the Bafana midfield, was stretched off the field in the second half after suffering an ankle injury against the Zebras who must be pleased with their performance despite losing 2-1.

National team manager Sipho Nkumane assures that the Blackburn Rovers player is expected to be back at training this evening.

“I have spoken to the doctor and he says that the injury is not serious. They will have look at it again later today, but Aaron will probably be back at training this evening.”

Nkumane, who leaves for Ghana to prepare for the arrival of Bafana in Ghana on Saturday, says the victory over the Zebras was a morale boost for the team.

Bafana were treated to a farewell dinner, hosted by the Mayor of eThekwini, last night.
