Football: 130 days... and counting until the World Cup finals
Saturday 31 January 1998
While Jamaica have turned to England to find new recruits to strengthen their World Cup squad, South Africa are looking to the Netherlands. They have had a problem finding a reliable goalkeeper: Andre Arendse, once the first choice, is now a reserve at Fulham and has been dropped from the national squad. Brian Baloyi, Arendse's successor, was blamed for a surprise 3-2 defeat to Namibia last weekend. Now Henk Vonk, who plays for Heerenveen in the Dutch First Division, has been called up for this month's African Nations' Cup. He was born in South Africa 26 years ago but moved to the Netherlands at the age of two.
