More changes to the Bafana Bafana Cosafa Cup squad

Written By Themba Khumalo on Friday, July 5, 2013 | Friday, July 05, 2013

It never rains but pours for Bafana Bafana.

Following the major changes that head coach Gordon Igesund made from the initial squad announced a week ago, Igesund has had to make more changes on Friday, 5 July 2013.

Four players have withdrawn from the travelling party – three of them were replacements.

Musa Bilankulu of Bidvest Wits has now been replaced by Platinum Stars captain Vuyo Mere; Lance Davids from Ajax Cape Town makes way and his place has been taken by Edward Manqele of Mamelodi Sundowns; Kaizer Chiefs’ Mandla Masango comes in for Luyolo Nomandela of Free State Stars; while Mzikayise Mashaba of Bidvest Wits has been called up to replace William Twala of Orlando Pirates (formerly Chippa United).

“We need to be competitive there. There were so many players pulling out for whatever reasons and so many not available so it is becoming very tough, but as we said before this is s great opportunity for some of these players to say we are the future. We have to soldier on,” said Igesund.

Meanwhile goalkeeper Wayne Sandilands will captain Bafana Bafana captain during the Cosafa Cup tournament in the absence of regular captain, fellow goal minder Itumeleng Khune.

The squad assembles on Wednesday, 10 July 2013, and travels to Zambia on the same day.
