BAFANA Bafana No1 goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune has apologised to his teammates and the nation for the penalty he caused against Uruguay on Wednesday.
"I owe South Africa an apology," said Khune.
"I think that I owe my teammates and the rest of South Africa an apology. It was not deliberate, but I think I owe everybody an apology."
But Swiss referee Massimo Busacca was somewhat harsh when he gave the Kaizer Chiefs' short-stopper a straight red card.
Busacca's handling of the match left much to be desired as he was hard on Bafana and was also lambasted by an incensed South Africa's coach Carlos Alberto Parreira.
The penalty was scored by Diego Forlan to put Uruguay 2-0 up after the Athletic Madrid forward had also struck the opener.
Alavaro Periera scored the third goal on the stroke at the death.
About the game, Khune said: "We did not play our normal game, but I'm still hopeful we will reach the second round."
Khune is only the second goalkeeper to be red carded in the World Cup after Gianluca Pagliuca of Italy, who was sent off in the Azzurri's 1-0 win against Norway in 1994, .
Bafana will also be without Kagisho Dikgacoi in their last Group A match against France at the Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein on Tuesday afternoon.
The Fulham midfielder picked up his second yellow card on Wednesday.
Though it looks like Bafana will not make it to the second round after Wednesday's setback, the players and Safa are still hopeful for a mathematical rescue .
But it will need a miracle for them to achieve this feat because odds are stacked heavily against them.
Like Khune, Australia captain Tim Cahill will serve a one-match ban.
Cahill was sent off against Germany and will miss his side's game against Ghana at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg tomorrow.
Fifa disciplinary committee did not use its right to increase a mandatory one-match ban on Cahill, who was sent off in Australia's 4-0 defeat by Germany on Sunday for a foul on Bastian Schweinsteiger. - Ramatsiyi Moholoa and Sapa-DPA
