13 Jun 2019, 13:25

Following Stuart Baxter’s naming of his final 23-man AFCON squad, Futaa takes a look at Bafana Bafana’s most experienced heads.

Experience does count for a lot and should not be taken lightly. It is purely the importance of having been in a situation before.

Young players look to experienced players in important moments just as Stuart Baxter may lean heavily on experienced members he's unable to change the game.

Here are Bafana’s top 5 most capped players:

1. Dean Furman

 

  • Age: 30
  • Birth: Cape Town
  • Club: SuperSport United
  • Position: Midfielder
  • Caps: 42


2. Thulani Hlatshwayo

 

  • Age: 29
  • Birth: Johannesburg
  • Club: Bidvest Wits
  • Position: Central defender
  • Caps: 38

 

3. Thulani Serero

  • Age: 29
  • Birth: Johannesburg
  • Club: Vitesse (Netherlands)
  • Position: Attacking midfielder
  • Caps: 37


4. Sibusiso Vilakazi

  • Age: 29
  • Birth: Johannesburg
  • Club: Mamelodi Sundowns
  • Position: Attacking midfielder
  • Caps: 32

5. Hlompho Kekana

  • Age: 34
  • Birth: Zebediela
  • Club: Mamelodi Sundowns
