Goalkeeper and skipper Khune who said he was happy with the morale in the camp so far.
“So far so good; as usual, everyone is excited to turn out for the country and this particular camp has been no exception. Everyone who has been called up has vowed to put his body on the line for a bigger cause and that is what one needs going into such a match.
We will play Mauritania in our final AFCON match then the World Cup qualifiers and it is important to keep the momentum going starting with Saturday’s game against Gambia,” said Khune.
The first match between South Africa and Gambia ended in a goalless draw in Durban (13 June 2015).
Bafana Bafana currently lie third on the table with three points after four matches. Cameroon leads the pack on 8 points, one more than second-placed Mauritania while Gambia has two points.
