Twenty-four Bafana Bafana players have reported for national team duty ahead of the two friendly international matches against Swaziland and Nigeria.

South Africa faces neighbours Swaziland on Wednesday, 25 March at the Somhlolo Stadium, kicking off at 19h00, and four days later (Sunday, 29 March) will welcome Nigeria at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.

Kick-off is at 15h30.

“We have called up 30 players and have covered every position, so we will not replace any of those who are unable to come to camp. I think it is also a blessing in disguise in that we will be able to test out the players we have called-up – for instance Dean has been playing with Andile in the middle of the park, so it would be great to see who else could fill in that role. To be frank we would have loved to have all players available but seeing it is not possible we have to move on,” said Bafana Bafana head coach Ephraim Shakes Mashaba

The players assembled for camp on Sunday, 22 March and will conduct their first training session in Johannesburg on Monday afternoon (23 March).

The team was expected to depart for Swaziland today but have had to postpone their travel to Tuesday (24 March) due to some players only expected to arrive tonight – Denmark-based Lebogang Phiri as well as Holland-based Thulani Serero and Kamohelo Mokotjo
