Soccer-Double delight for South African Furman

By Mark Gleeson DURBAN, South Africa, Jan 27 (Reuters) - Dean Furman enjoyed a delightful double on Sunday when South Africa qualified for the African Nations Cup quarter-finals and his Oldham Athletic eliminated Liverpool in the English FA Cup. "I walked straight into the changing room and was told the score," Furman told reporters with a broad smile after learning that third-tier Oldham had scored a shock 3-2 win over Premier League opposition.

Furman has a potential career-changing game when his hosts South Africa take on Morocco in Durban in a decisive group match at the tournament, offering a stage to impress and win the attention of bigger clubs.
