Patrick Phungwayo's 2015 Africa Cup of Nations dream is over after the Orlando Pirates left back was compelled to withdraw from the Bafana squad with a knee damage.
Phungwayo was named in Shakes Mashaba's last 23-man squad for the Afcon finals in Equatorial Guinea, and flew out with the group to their preparation camp in Gabon on Wednesday.
Anyhow he won't recoup in time from a knee harm grabbed in preparing with Bafana on December 30.
"We have no choice however to send him home so he can start … recovery," said Mashaba.
"We would have wanted to be with him to play in the competition, but since of the damage we can't … We truly esteemed his commitment to the group, subsequently we postponed in making this publication, trusting he will recoup yet we have discovered we have no choice. We can just wish him an expedient recuperation."
Bafana will be naming a trade for Phungwayo in the exact not so distant future.
In better news for Bafana, Andile Jali has been announced fit by the group's restorative staff, and could well gimmick against Cameroon in an inviting in Libreville this night. Commence is
