African Cup of Nations

Dean Furman will be bidding for further glory tomorrow at the African Cup of Nations.

Latics' captain is certain to be in the South Africa side which plays Mali in the quarter finals.

And Furman is likely to be up against one of the world's top players, former Barcelona midfield man Seydou Keita.

Here's how News 24 Nigeria described the match up.

At first glance this is an unequal contest with the left boot of former Barcelona midfielder Keita oozing class, but Furman from English third-tier outfit Oldham is a tireless warrior who usually makes his presence felt.

The quarter final between Bafana Bafana and Mali takes place in Durban tomorrow, kick off 6.30pm. The match is being televised live on ITV4.
