South Africa’s Remaining Foreign-Based Players Will Arrive Today
Some of Bafana Bafana’s overseas-based players have arrived in South Africa and visited their late colleague, Senzo Meyiwa’s grave in Durban earlier this morning.
Andile Jali and Tokelo Rantie flew into Mzansi over the weekend after their respective games in Belgium and England, while Dean Furman made the trip after Doncaster Rover’s FA Cup game was called off due to bad wether. The three are expected to be joined by their other colleagues in the next 24 hours.
Goalkeeper, Darren Keet, is in transit to Durban as we speak, while defender, Anele Ngcongca, and midfielders, May Mahlangu and Thulani Serero, are expected to arrive at some point today.
There are just the seven foreign-based players in Shakes Mashaba’s side for this weekend’s crucial clash with Sudan, with the head coach opting for local talent rather than overseas players for the most part.
It remains to be seen who Mashaba will name as his captain for the upcoming games, which will be the first Bafana will play since the tragic passing of Meyiwa late last month.
