Fortune back in the mix 06/08/04
Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has secured the services of yet another player who had 'retired' from international football, Quinton Fortune.

Baxter had already persuaded Shaun Bartlett, Benni McCarthy and Mark Fish to return to the team, although the latter has again retired from international football.

Fortune has been named in the Bafana Bafana squad to take on Tunisia in Tunis on August 18, although he still has to go undergo a late fitness test on a calf strain to determine his availability.

Johannesburg: Stuart Baxter looked a happy man yesterday, as he revealed that he had reeled in Bafana's final truant.

"He's on our list for Tunisia," Baxter is reported as saying by the Cape Times.

"But it's still in the balance whether we bring him or not."

However, it is almost certain that the Cape Town-born player will be available for the country's next World and African Cup qualifier, against the DRC on September 6.

Fortune has not played for Bafana since he fell out with former national team coach, Shakes Mashaba.

Baxter is looking at using Fortune in the central midfield role, a position which has not properly been filled since the days of players like Linda Buthelezi and John Moeti.

"I think he has the appetite and the experience and from that position (central midfield) will give us an extra dimension where he can influence the game," said Baxter.
