BAFANA Bafana's Kagisho Dikgacoi readily accepts he is not the force that he once was in the midfield.

BAFANA Bafana's Kagisho Dikgacoi readily accepts he is not the force that he once was in the midfield.

The Fulham player's spell on the bench at his club has done him no favours, though Dikgacoi is not bothered since he believes there is still sufficient time for him to improve and attain his best form as the World Cup progresses.

"I have not been doing as well as I would like, but I'm impressed with my overall performance. The coach is also happy," Dikgacoi said yesterday.

Another discussion point has been around who coach Carlos Alberto Parreira will start with at the heart of midfield alongside the irrepressible Reneilwe "Yeye" Letsholonyane.

Letsholonyane has given Parreira nothing but first-class performances - crowning this spell with another man-of-the-match display against Denmark on Saturday.

"I think the two of us have complimented each other quite well, but naturally it is up to the coach who he plays where and with whom," Dikgacoi said.

Letsholonyane had a philosophical explanation to his meteoric rise from the dregs of the PSL to being on the verge of international stardom.

"I told a few people about my determination to be in the national team four years ago. But if I had to explain my improvement, I would say growth is an important aspect of being human," said Letsholonyane.

As the host nation and as a direct consequence of their recent winning streak, there is great expectation on the players. This does not bother leading striker Katlego "Killer" Mphela, who feels he is capable of finding the gaps in the Mexican defence on Friday.

"This is a different sort of pressure, we carry with us the hopes and dreams of millions. But I have watched Mexico play and I believe they play with three defenders. They also like to keep the ball so it will be a free-flowing match with them attacking us and us attacking them. The gaps are there so it will be up to me to find them," said Mphela.

l England beat Platinum Stars 3-0 in a friendly at Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg last night. The goals were scored by Jermaine Defoe, Joe Cole and Wayne Rooney.
