Cape Town - The list of players that did not take part in Bafana Bafana's tour down under depsite being called up has been confirmed. 

Soccer Laduma are reporting that SAFA has finally revealed the names of those players called up by outgoing Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund but failed to honour their selection for the tour to Australasia.

As reported earlier by Sport24 Oupa Manyisa and Thabo Matlaba, both Orlando Pirates players, were among the group of South African stars who neglected to arrive for medical exams by SAFA doctors. 

The missing names have now been revealed and only two further players form part of the AWOL players group.

The players are Sthembiso Ngcobo of Wits and Mamelodi Sundowns’ captain and midfielder, Teko Modise.

SAFA’s communications manager, Dominic Chimhavi, confirmed the list of players who broke the national team's protocol regarding injuries.

Chimhavi added that SAFA had not yet formally charged the AWOL players and that process was still to be followed.
