Khumalo back in Bafana fold
Johannesburg - Gordon Igesund
has named his 23-man squad for next month’s crucial FIFA World Cup qualifier against Botswana.
According to the Soccer-Laduma website
, Bafana need to claim victory over their opponents and hope that
Ethiopia drop points against the Central African Republic, if South
Africa are to keep their hopes of making it to Brazil 2014 alive.
A number of international-based players such as Bongani Khumalo,
Kagisho Dikgacoi, Thulani Serero and Kamohelo Mokotjo have made the cut,
despite a number of months out of Igesund’s squad.
Meanwhile, Andile Jali has once again been given the nod by Igesund, as
has Kermit Erasmus, following his impressive start to life with Orlando
KV Kortrijk goalkeeper, Darren Keet, has been called up to the squad
for the fixture, although will only train with the team and won’t
feature in the game. However, Keet will remain in the squad for the
friendly against Zimbabwe three days later.
