Bafana Bafana Squad to Face Ghana Announced

New head coach Pitso Mosimane has announced his Bafana Bafana squad to play Ghana’s Black Stars in a friendly on 11 August at Soccer City.

Mosimane has retained captain Aaron Mokoena, who had been expected to be axed. MacBeth Sibaya also makes the cut despite Mosimane saying recently that some old Bafana players, like Sibaya, might not make it to the team.

Those in the know believe that this promises to be an entertaining match, with the West Africans bringing most of the players that helped the team reach the World Cup quarterfinals.

Bafana Squad Reflects Pitso’s Vision

According to kickoff, Mosimane, though, says the squad reflects his vision. However, he is coy during questioning as to why there are a few old men in the squad and no specific youngsters.

Mosimane did add, that  he hadn’t selected youngsters like Andile Jali and Siyanda Xulu, who were both expected to make the squad as they were involved with preparations for the National U23 team with coach Shakes Mashaba.

The Bafana Bafana squad:

Goalkeepers – Itumeleng Khune and Moeneeb Josephs.

Defenders – Siboniso Gaxa, Morgan Gould, Bevan Fransman, Tsepo Masilela, Aaron Mokoena, Anele Ngcongca, Siyabonga Sangweni and Innocent Mdledle.

Midfielders – Siphiwe Tshabalala, Daine Klate, Teko Modise, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Thanduyise Khuboni, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Steven Pienaar, MacBeth Sibaya and Surprise Moriri.

Strikers – Katlego Mphela, Sthembiso Ngcobo and Bernard Parker.
