South Africa: Ndlovu Ruled Out of Bafana Bafana Qualifier Against Cameroon
South Africa striker Dino Ndlovu has been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad to face Cameroon in back-to-back 2017 Gabon Orange Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers due to injury.
Ndlovu injured his left knee in his club's match over the weekend and was assessed by the Bafana Bafana team medico, Dr Thulani Ngwenya on Monday (21 March)
"It is always a blow when we lose a player that we have called up into the national team, but having said that we have to forge ahead. We would have loved to have him with us, but it is just unfortunate. Injuries are part of the game. We can only wish him a speedy recovery. We are still working on the replacement as we definitely need someone in that position because goals are of paramount importance in the two matches," said Bafana Bafana head coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba.
