Nice to see Dikgacoi looking on the bright side despite his injury at Bolton.

At least the injury came well before the World Cup. From my point of view I was really enjoying the game against Bolton and I was unlucky to get injured just ten minutes into the second half. It was really unfortunate.

Right now I’m just looking forward to being back in the starting eleven and I’m pushing myself hard to get back as quick as possible. I’m hoping that I’ll be starting to train again in two weeks time. The Club’s Medical team have also been working really hard on the injury.

I’m happy with what I’ve been doing and I think tactically I’ve improved, as have my reactions and speed. I think I’ve improved most areas of my game and I’m looking forward to progressing further but it’s up to me to continue working hard.

My mum and my friends call me after the games if they’ve been watching them. They watch a lot of Premier League games back home. Most of them called after the Bolton game to check the injury wasn’t serious and that it wouldn’t affect me for the World Cup.

I’m really looking forward to the World Cup, especially as we’re the hosts. The World Cup is obviously very important to me but it’s also important that I play games before then.

There’s still plenty of football to be played before then and Dikgacoi’s excited about the end to Fulham’s season.

Of course I’ve thought about playing at Wembley. Everyone loves to play in the FA Cup and it would be very special for Fulham to get to Wembley. Not only in the FA Cup but if we can get past Shakhtar Donetsk and into the last 16 of the Europa League I’d be so happy. Juventus and Ajax were teams that I used to follow, especially when Steven Pienaar was playing for Ajax – so I would love to play against them.

I’m enjoying it in England and most of the things are actually the same as back home. We drive on the same side of the road and the signs are all the same so there aren’t that many differences and I keep in touch with the other South African players who are playing in the Premier League.
