Khune to start for Bafana against Senegal

Khune to start for Bafana against Senegal

Soccer 6 punters have the opportunity this weekend, and through to Wednesday, to bet on all the key World Cup qualifying match-ups.

The win took Senegal to an unassailable 11 points after five games, while South Africa remain rooted at the bottom on four points.

FIFA's unprecedented decision to order a replay and give Senegal another chance after finding Ghanaian referee Joseph Lamptey guilty of match-fixing caused serious discontent among the other teams in Senegal's group.

South Africa takes on the team Senegal today in the FIFA World Cup Qualification Africa 2018.

As it stands, Bafana have to beat Senegal twice to qualify for their first World Cup since 2002 having participated in the 2010 finals as the hosts. Sadio Mane of Senegal will be back as he declared himself that he is 100% fit from the injury but Striker Mame Biram Diouf is still out. They were clearly the best team in CAF Group D, going undefeated over five games. Two places are still up for grabs after Nigeria and Egypt secured places last month, and now joined by Senegal.

This is how South Africa was eliminated from World Cup qualification. Senegal used the contentious replay to seal its place.

Morocco are one point in front of the Ivory Coast ahead of a showdown in Abidjan with the visitors hoping to end a 20-year absence from the World Cup.

South Africa came even closer soon after when Lebogang Manyama swept a low cross against the crossbar and Senegal hastily cleared the loose ball.

And Mane was again involved as Senegal doubled their lead before half-time, Khune saving the Liverpool forward's effort but seeing unlucky defender Thamsanqa Mkhize turn the rebound into his own goal.
