Patosi and Meyiwa named in Bafana squad

By Sapa | Dec 11, 2012 | COMMENTS [ 31 ]

Belgium-based midfielder Ayanda Patosi and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa are the two uncapped players named in the Bafana Bafana squad to face Malawi in a friendly match in Durban next week.

Coach Gordon Igesund also included defender Siyanda Xulu, who plays his football in Russia, in the 24-man list.

Kaizer Chiefs fullback Tsepo Masilela and Orlando Pirates midfielder Daine Klate return after long absences from the national set-up.

Katlego Mphela was named amongst a group of 12 players that will be added to the squad after the December 22 friendly at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The Mamelodi Sundowns striker recently returned from a six-month spell on the sidelines due to knee surgery.

The other players that will link up with the team are Darren Keet, Eric Mathoho, Anele Ngcongca, Andile Jali, Teko Modise, Bongani Khumalo, Ricardo Nunes, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Dean Furman, Thulani Serero and Benni McCarthy.

The final 23-man squad for the Africa Cup of Nations will be announced on December 30.

Meyiwa and Masilela = good choice, Not sure about Mphela though - he's not fit yet and maybe GI should have included Majoro instead.

Benny McCarthy will have muscle pulls within 2 minutes. So, is it game over for Moeneeb? I see that even at Pirates untrustworthy Senzo has taken the baton from him.

@Right-Back-Khumalo
Some people are dumb here. Why is it always about clubs?
================================================================
I can't stomach this idiotic behaviour of making it about clubs. I remember there was this other idiot who never celebrated Mark Williams' goals because he was a Chiefs player.

Coach you only selected Xulu only because he's playing in Europe right? Anyway he deserve the call, he's talented this boy.
