South Africa’s man of the hour, Darren Keet, has spoken after his heroic performance for Bafana Bafana that decided a place at the 2019 AFCON over Libya.
The Bidvest Wits goalkeeper made a couple of match-winning saves as Bafana found themselves against the ropes in Sfax last Sunday.
Standing in the absence of the injured Itumeleng Khune and closely tied with fellow national team goalkeeper, Ronwel Williams, coach Stuart Baxter honestly admitted it was a tight call to select who would take the gloves against Libya.
“I never look at it as if I am the number 1, everyone has to fight for their position,” Keet told Soccer Laduma Radio.
"I don’t look at myself as if I have to play, I have to make sure I am still working hard and at the end of the day, the coach has to make the decision based on the game-plan he thinks will fit the game.
On getting the nod ahead of the equally talented Williams, Keet said:
“I have no idea, either one of us could have played…I knew that at any stage, either one of us could play. Obviously, the coach opted for me. There was no certain thing that made the coach choose me; in the end, you have to do the best you can,” he said.
