Igesund picks ‘strong’ squad
The Bafana coach says there’s a great balance in the squad for the Word Cup qualifier against Botswana.
CAPE TOWN - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund says the squad he chose for their crucial World Cup qualifier against Botswana is one of the strongest ever.
He selected a strong team with stalwarts from back to front, including international stars.
Tokelo Rantie and Siyanda Xulu were expected to touch down at 13:10 in Durban on Tuesday to join the team.
Igesund says, "It is one of the strongest sides that I've selected. It's a hugely talented squad. There is a right balance in the squad with youth and experience. The biggest headache that I have now, which is a fantastic headache to have, is who to leave out the team."
The qualifier against Botswana takes place on Saturday at 15:30.
