Andre Arendse discusses Bafana Bafana's goalkeeper situation


With Itumeleng Khune out nursing an injury, Darren Keet and Ronwen Williams are battling it out for a place in the starting line-up. Bafana are set to play Libya in their final Africa Cup of Nations Group E qualifier in Sfax on Sunday.

Kaizer Chiefs’ Bruce Bvuma is the third choice goalkeeper who is providing cover for the other two.

“All three keepers are here on merit and they have been exceptional at club level. Bruce is no stranger to the national team as I have worked with him at the COSAFA Cup tournament, while Ronwen and Darren are key for their respective clubs,” Arendse said.

“I believe that this is one of the toughest selections we will have to make as a Technical team because both Williams and Keet deserve to start but only one can be given that slot,” said Arendse.

“We all know our strengths; Ronwen is very good with long range shots and one-on-one situations; while Darren possess the advantage in terms of aerial balls. So again we will focus on all aspects of goalkeeping during our last few sessions and should be able to know for sure who will start by Friday.”
