Cape Town - Bafana Bafana have safely arrived in Durban to start preparations for their upcoming international friendly match against Guinea-Bissau.

According to the official SAFA website, all the players have reported for national team duty with the exception of France-based Keagan Dolly who is expected to arrive on Tuesday to join his compatriots in Durban.

Overseas-based players - Thulani Serero, Andile Jali, Kermit Erasmus, Luther Singh, Lars Veldwijk and Kamohelo Mokotjo are also in camp.

There is still uncertainly about the availability of Mokotjo to play for South Africa after he acquired Dutch citizenship, but his matter is being handled at the highest level.

“Kamohelo Mokotjo is among the players who reported for the national team camp on Sunday,” said Bafana Bafana Bafana team manager Barney Kujane addressing the media in Durban upon the squad’s arrival in the city.

“You all know that we have this issue whereby the player has obtained a Dutch citizenship - but we have invited him to camp and his matter of citizenship and playing for Bafana Bafana is being handled by the Association (SAFA) and the South African government.

“Immediately this matter has come to a logical conclusion we will inform the members of the media.”

“Just to assure you also, the reason we have invited him to camp is that Kamohelo has indicated that he wants to play for his country, and we recognise that.

“As to what happens next we will have to wait for the outcome from the Association. For now he will continue training with the team and preparing for the upcoming matches until further notice.”

The clash will take place at Moses Mabhida Stadium on Saturday, March.

Kick off is at 15:00.
