Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund says he is finding balance in his squad ahead of their match against Zambia in the Nelson Mandela Challenge at FNB Stadium next week.

Igesund named a 24-man squad for the clash in Nasrec on Monday, and he said he had nearly finalised his group for next year's Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournament.

“We've played four games and I've really had a good look at a pool of players,” said Igesund, who took charge of the national squad in July.

“I've probaly got about 75 to 80 percent of the team."

Bafana Bafana squad:

Itumeleng Khune, Darren Keet

Anele Ngcongca, Siyabonga Sangweni, Bongani Khumalo (captain), Bevan Fransman, Ricardo Nunes, Punch Masenamela, Thabo Nthethe

Dean Furman, Thanduyise Khuboni, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Lerato Chabangu, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Teko Modise, Oupa Manyisa, Thuso Phala, Sifiso Myeni, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Delron Buckley

Bernard Parker, Katlego Mashego, Tokelo Rantie, Kermit Erasmus
