Bafana coach Ntseki names squad for Mali

Molefi Ntseki has listed his 23 troops for Mali in a Nelson Mandela Challenge game.

The newly appointed Bafana Bafana coach will finally make his debut for Mzansi. Ntseki's debut delay came after South Africa had suffered two friendly game pullouts.

Both Zambia and Madagascar canceled games against Bafana in a boycott against the xenophobic attacks that rocked the country.

The South African Football Association (SAFA) have now confirmed this year’s annual Mandela Challenge for 13 October. Additionally, the game has been set for Port Elizabeth's Nelson Mandela Stadium.

Ntseki’s squad selection:

  • Goalkeepers
    Darren Keet, Ronwen Williams, Brandon Peterson.
  • Defenders
    Eric Mathoho, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Thapelo Morena, Mosa Lebusa, Thamsanqa Mkhize, Innocent Maela.
  • Midfielders
    Kamohelo Mokotjo, Thato Mokeke, Dean Furman, Lebogang Phiri, Bongani Zungu, Themba Zwane, Thembinkosi Lorch, Percy Tau, Thulani Serero, Keagan Dolly.
  • Strikers
    Lebo Mothiba, Bradley Grobler, Kermit Erasmus.
