Khune: After Chiefs, Bafana’s my second home

Kaizer Chiefs and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune believes the national team owe South Africa’s fans a victory, ahead of Saturday’s World Cup qualifying clash with Burkina Faso.

Bafana face the Stallions at the FNB Stadium in a 2018 World Cup qualifier knowing that only a win will keep alive slim hopes of reaching the global showpiece in Russia next year.

Currently, Stuart Baxter’s men are bottom of Group D and it appears they have to win all of their remaining games if they are to stand any chance of playing in their first World Cup since 2010.

Khune told Chiefs’ official website, “We owe it to the nation to beat Burkina Faso. We are carrying the hopes of the nation. Our intentions are clear, we plan to win this match.

“It won’t be easy, but we are geared to redeem ourselves on Saturday. We can’t afford to disappoint the nation. We are playing at home and it is important to dominate and collect the maximum points in our backyard.

“After Kaizer Chiefs, Bafana represents my second home. I am happy to be back and will do my best to lead the squad to victory.”
