Durban - South Africa striker Lehlohonolo Majoro has been passed fit for Saturday's African Nations Cup quarter-final after a shin injury suffered last week, officials said on Wednesday.

Majoro scored for the hosts in their Group A match against Angola in Durban last Wednesday but had to go off near the end after a kick from the opposing goalkeeper left him with a cut on the shin that required stitches.

He missed Sunday's draw with Morocco which allowed South Africa to finish top of the group and reach a quarter-final meeting with Mali in Durban.
