Cape Town - Bafana Bafana captain Dean Furman is a doubt for the friendly against Zambia scheduled to take place on January 4, due to his club commitments with English side Doncaster Rovers.

The friendly will form part of Bafana’s preparations for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations, taking place in Equatorial Guinea from January 17 to February 8.

According to website, however, Furman will only be arriving in South Africa on the day of the match as Doncaster are in action over the festive period.

Bafana started a mini training camp on Friday, with 27 players of the 34-man squad reporting for national team duty in Johannesburg.

All the overseas-based players are yet to arrive as they still have matches for their respective clubs.

Ayanda Patosi, Anele Ngcongca, Andile Jali and Darren Keet – all from Belgium – have all arrived, while Tokelo Rantie (England) is expected to arrive today.

Ajax Amsterdam star Thulani Serero will, like Furman, only link up with Shakes Mashaba's squad in the new year owing to club duties, albeit earlier on January 2.
