"I think I'm okay with how camp situation has panned out so far. As for knocks it's part of football so I will say we have some players with that [knocks] but that doesn't prevent them from playing in the match. Knock is different from injury so we're not alarmed by it, but apart from that everything is fine in camp," Basigi stated.
