Rivaldo Coetzee has improved tremendously since he was stretchered off in the opening match of the tournament against Algeria. He missed the Senegal clash.

“We are going to do a late individual fitness test on him to see if he can train with the rest of the squad later today. However we are confident that he could be available for selection for the game against Ghana but that will also be dependent on whether the coaching staff uses him or not.

“He has completed his rehabilitation and we are happy with the results. He is pain free at the moment so the key is to see whether he can fully resume training,” added Dr Ngwenya.

Coetzee played only 29 minutes in the opening match of the African soccer showpiece.

His place was taken by Siyabonga Nhlapho.

Bafana Bafana have two training sessions left before their match with Ghana – one on Sunday afternoon and the last one on Monday evening.
