Goal.com South Africa's Top Five players of 2012
2) Kagisho Dikgacoi
Dikgacoi has enjoyed a fantastic start to his 2012-13 season after tying up a permanent deal with Crystal Palace. The midfielder has been encouraged to work on his attacking play and weighed in with a handful of important goals early in the season. He has since shown his versatility after playing in the defensive line-up for the Eagle's last two games. Dikgacoi's initial move to Europe proved disastrous as he was robbed of game time, but his time at Crystal Palace has transformed the player into a potent force both defensively and now in attack. Dikgacoi was a consistent performer for Bafana as he marshalled the midfield well and will be one of the most important players for the national side come the Africa Cup of Nations.
