Bafana Announce COSAFA Cup Squad

Helman Mkhalele has announced his preliminary Bafana Bafana squad for the upcoming COSAFA Cup.

Mkhalele, who is Broos’ assistant for the senior team, will be in charge of the team and has named 50 names in his initial list.

Earlier on Friday, South Africa were drawn in Group A alongside Mozambique, eSwatini and Botswana.

The tournament kicks off on 26 June and will finish by 7 July, but it remains to be seen whether all clubs will release those players.

The squad includes three players from Mamelodi Sundowns, including youngster Siyabonga Mabena, three from Kaizer Chiefs and six from Orlando Pirates.

It also includes five players from Stellenbosch FC, plus captain Deano Van Rooyen who was listed as Orlando Pirates player, but that confusion has since been cleared up and SAFA have released an updated squad.

Below is Bafana’s full COSAFA squad:
