EXTRA TIME: Watch Kaizer Chiefs keeper Khune working harder in the gym

Could Itumeleng Khune have saved Bafana Bafana if he was fit to face Cape Verde?

That's the question running through some fans and Khune's mind right now. Khune's Bafana was in a good position to qualify after two games, but after his illness he's now facing an early exit from World Cup contention without having anything to say for it on the field.

After missing the two games that SA lost, on social media Khune is his usual self with positive comments to inspire his followers, and looking to raise the hopes of fans with his gym work. That has to be Kaizer Chiefs fans. 

If it's meant for Bafana Bafana fans, then he has to single handedly save penalties and make some great saves to keep SA in contention against Burkina Faso and Senegal (twice). 

And going by commentator William Shongwe's comments on SuperSport TV, we'd also need Khune for creating assists (because the midfielders can't do it).
