Johannesburg - Bafana Bafana safely arrived at their base camp in Rustenburg on Monday ahead of their 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Egypt but they will be without key players Thulani Serero and Kermit Erasmus.

The match will be played on Sunday, 5 June 2011 in Cairo, Egypt.

However, Bafana will be without Ajax Cape Town midfielder Serero who is suffering from a hamstring strain. Serero was taken for a scan shortly after reporting for national team duty on Monday, and was declared unfit to be in camp. Coach Pitso Mosimane will not call any replacement for him.

SuperSport United’s Erasmus, who was called on as an addition player, has also been withdrawn from the squad as he will be attending trials in Europe. His place has been taken by striker Lehlohonolo Majoro of AmaZulu, who was expected in Rustenburg on Monday night.

Half of the overseas-based players have already arrived in camp on the first day. The Belgium-based duo of Anele Ngcongca and Siboniso Gaxa has been joined by Bernard Parker who plays in Holland, and England-based Kagisho Dikgacoi. Striker Davide Somma is only expected on Tuesday.

Steven Pienaar is expected at the weekend, as well the Israel-based duo of Tsepo Masilela and Bevan Fransman. Also not in camp are Andile Jali, Happy Jele and Tlou Segolela of Orlando Pirates who will be playing in the Nedbank Cup final on Saturday, 28 May 2011.

Mosimane should have his full team by next Monday.
