Phakaaathi understands that goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayo had no family commitments this weekend – this was the excuse given by Bafana officials for him not joining up with the squad for the World Cup qualifiers against Angola.

Instead, it is believed that Khuzwayo simply chose to snub Bafana, after initially being called up at the last minute by coach Shakes Mashaba to replace the injured Itumeleng Khune.

Chiefs are said to be annoyed with Bafana, because they fielded Khune in recent friendlies against Costa Rica and Honduras even though he already showed signs of injury.
