Cape Town - Ajax Amsterdam midfielder Thulani Serero has been declared fit to train and travel with the Bafana Bafana team.
South Africa take on Mauritania on Saturday, September 5 in a AFCON 2017 qualifier.
Serero was called up for national team duty and his club had said he was recovering from an injury – the Bafana Bafana medical team assessed him this morning and found him ready to be part of the squad.
He trained with his compatriots, completed the session and showed no signs of pain.
The session was moved to Sturrock grounds at Wits after the University of Johannesburg grounds were found to be waterlogged.
"Serero is fine, pain free and was able to complete the training session so we are happy with the results," said Bafana Bafana medic Dr Ngwenya to SAFA website.
"He is ready to travel with the team. He had an ankle injury which he was recovering from hence the team sent us the scan and the report that had an injury, but he is good to go after we checked him."
Serero arrived in camp on Tuesday night alongside Germany-based Daylon Claasen, bringing the number of players in camp to 24.
Only Kaizer Chiefs left-back Tsepo Masilela has not reported for national team duty after his club informed Bafana Bafana that he was injured.
“We had requested that he also come in for medical assessment, just like Serero, but the status quo with Masilela remains the same from yesterday - he has not yet arrived in camp and the issue has been reported to the Association so they can deal with it administratively because it is now out of our hands. And that’s where we are at the moment,” added Dr Ngwenya.
Bafana face Mauritania at the Olympic Stadium in Nouakchott.
Kick-off at 20:00 (SA time).
