Cape Town - Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has announced a 24-man squad for the crucial Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Libya.

The fixture will take place on Sunday, March 24 at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Tunisia, with kick-off at 18:00 (SA time).

South Africa are currently in second place in Group E on 9 points while Nigeria have accumulated 10 points and have already qualified despite having to still play the Seychelles

Libya (7 points) find themselves with a chance to head to Egypt in June for the tournament - but only if they beat Bafana Bafana.

Meanwhile, the draw for the 24-team tournament will take place on Friday, April 12.
