Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba has named the squad of 24 that will leave the country today to face Sudan on 5 September at El Merreikh stadium for the 2015 Morocco Orange Africa Cup of Nations qualifier. The match will kick-off at 20h00.
Unfortunately the country’s number 1 goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, will not be travelling with the team due to an injury.
Khune is carrying a Grade 3 stress fracture on the foot bone and the medical team decided against travelling with him fearing they would aggravate the injury.
“I am happy with this group of players I am travelling with. We are going there to fight, make no mistake,” said Mashaba.
The team returns soon after the match and will land in South Africa at 06h30. They will connect straight to Cape Town to start preparations for the game against reigning African champions Nigeria which will take place at Cape Town stadium on 10 September 2014.
