FILE-In this file photo taken Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013. South Africa's goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, right, celebrates with fellow goalkeepers Wayne Sandilands, left, and Senzo Meyiwa after drawing with Morocco to advance to the quarterfinals of the African Cup of Nations, in Durban, South Africa. Now, South Africa is nowhere _ not even among the 31 teams that qualified for this year’s World Cup in Brazil. Well, not exactly nowhere. It is on FIFA’s radar for an investigation into match-fixing allegations. And it is still in the news at home _ for the wrong reasons: Sports minister Fikile Mbalula last month called the national side “a bunch of losers” and “useless, unbearable individuals” after early elimination on home soil from the lower-level African Nations Championship.(AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell, File)
