Which SA Province Has The Most Bafana Stars At AFCON?

With Bafana Bafana kicking off in the group stages at the CAF Africa Cup of Nations today, in the latest iDiski Times, we took a look at where the players in our team come from across our beautiful country.

We all know the clubs they play for currently, but the 23 players in the squad also represent their birthplaces, with communities across the country supporting their hometown heroes.

In this particular squad, seven of the nine provinces are represented. Unfortunately, no players from the Northern Cape or North West were selected by Hugo Broos.

While the province’s clubs have struggled in recent seasons, Limpopo leads the way when it comes to Bafana selection, with six players hailing from our most northern province…
