Bafana Bafana head coach, Stuart Baxter, has a tough goalkeeping decision ahead of Sunday’s crunch game against Libya in the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.
With the nation’s long-standing number one, Itumeleng Khune, out injured for the rest of the season, Baxter is left to decide between SuperSport United’s Ronwen Williams and Darren Keet of Bidvest Wits.
“I wouldn’t like to say who the frontrunner is. Because I think they’re so close that if one of them has a bad week‚ or one has a very good week‚ it’ll be that close‚” Baxter said to Times Live.
“I think when we see them in training‚ and who’s dealing with it best‚ and when we see who’s the one who is embracing it better‚ they’re that close that I’m guessing that person will get the nod.
“I think if you’re talking purely generally then Darren is a calmer sort of person. But ‘Ronza’ [Williams] is capable of a big performance – a really big performance.
“You know‚ one of the saves against [Kaizer] Chiefs the other night [in a 1-1 draw for SuperSport United]‚ when he got out and smothered – I think he’s capable of that.
“But to do that you’ve got to be in good mental balance. And that’s what we’re going to look at on the camp,” Baxter concluded.
The match is scheduled for Sunday at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax.
