Bafana Bafana team doctor Thulani Ngwenya has confirmed that midfielder Kamohelo Mokotjo will be available for selection for their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Sudan.
The Brentford midfielder was left out of the South African match day squad that suffered a 2-0 defeat to Ghana on Thursday due to fatigue.
However, Ngwenya has since confirmed that Mokotjo has returned to full fitness after playing six games over three weeks.
‘After an assessment that was done by the medical team and the fitness trainer, we realised that ‘Kamo’ had played six matches in three weeks and all those matches he played 90 minutes,’ Ngwenya told the media.
‘He arrived in camp in Ghana the day before the match and when we assessed his condition we realised that he was fatigued and he couldn’t give us 90 minutes.
‘We took a medical decision to rest him for the game against Ghana to make sure that he is fresh for the match against Sudan. He is fully fit and available for selection.’
Bafana Bafana against Sudan kicks off at 3pm.
