Brockie hits out at bizarre Bafana selections

2017-03-28 14:45

Cape Town - SuperSport United attacker Jeremy Brockie has hit out the Bafana Bafana squad named by SAFA to face Angola in an international friendly on Tuesday, in particular the two goalkeepers named on the bench.

Brockie, 29, hit out at the bizarre decision by stand-in coach Owen da Gama and his technical team, while at the same time added his shock at the exclusion of SuperSport United team-mate Thabo Mnyamane from the match-day squad.

Darren Keet will start Tuesday's clash in goal and will more than likely make way for Cape Town City's Shu-Aib Walters at some point during the match.

The need to include Itumeleng Khune on the bench as an additional shot-stopper does seem a strange one, while not including a fit Mnyamane - who got a mere 10 minutes of playing time against Guinea-Bissau last Saturday - is also puzzling.

Phakamani Mahlambi, Luther Singh and Diamond Thopola will make their debuts at the Buffalo City Stadium in East London.

According to the official SAFA website, the trio are part of nine changes made by Da Gama to the starting XI that beat Guinea-Bissau 3-1 in Durban.

Defenders Eric Mathoho and Tebogo Langerman are the only survivors from the last match.

Kick-off is at 19:00.
