Sunday in SA

Posted on 17 July 2011  - 12:00

The lads were back on the training pitch on Sunday after that late, late loss to Kaizer Chiefs on Saturday.

The squad was split into two groups for Sunday's training session in Nelspruit.

The players who took part in Saturday's Vodacom Challenge opener against Kaizer Chiefs went for a session in the gym and pool.

Meanwhile, the lads who didn't take part - plus Michael Dawson, Bongani Khumalo, Niko Kranjcar and Vedran Corluka, who did play - were put through a tough footballing session by Kevin Bond, Joe Jordan and Clive Allen.

They went through a number of exercises and ended with a demanding series of three-against-three matches over a small-sided pitch with Heurelho Gomes and Brad Friedel at each end.

There were three teams of three with each playing seven times - you only need to look at the picture of Luka Modric and 'Charlie' below to see how tough it was!
