Khune: Bafana will be rewarded for their hard work

Captain Itumeleng Khune believes Bafana will reap the rewards if they continue to work hard in the 2014 World Cup qualifying games

Bafana captain and goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune admits that the team did well against Central African Republic on Saturday night, after trashing their opponents 2-0 to top Group A standings.

Khune produced a man of the match performance against CAR and believes that their last night’s victory means a lot to South Africans out there.   

“We did well as a team. The boys came to the party. We really wanted this win and we are aware how much it means to the country,” said Khune after the match.  

Khune was not worried at the fact that Bafana should have buried their opponents with more just two goals, but the Chiefs captain believes two goals were good enough to seal all three points.

However, the 25-year-old number one urged his teammates to continue working hard, as there is still a long way to go.

“We scored two wonderful goals to ensure we get three points and that’s what matters. We have to continue working hard and we will be well-rewarded I believe,” said Itumeleng Khune.

Bafana’s next task will be away to Central African Republic on June 8, before facing Ethiopia on June 15.
