Mofokeng, Mabena, Titus Called Up For Bafana Bafana Prelimin Cosafa Squad

Bafana Bafana assistant coach Helman Mkhalele has named a provisional squad for the upcoming COSAFA Cup in Eastern Cape, set for later this month.

Mkhalele, filling in for head coach Hugo Broos, will finalize a smaller squad in the coming days.

The provisional squad includes several promising players like Sipho Chaine, Melusi Buthelezi, and Thabiso Monyane from Orlando Pirates. Notably, Stellenbosch FC contributes a significant number of players, including Athenkosi Mgcaba and captain Deano van Rooyen.

Samkelo Zwane and Bruce Bvuma from Kaizer Chiefs are also included, despite their team’s recent struggles. Mamelodi Sundowns, a usual source of Bafana Bafana players, only sees Zuko Mdunyelwa and Siyabonga Mabena included in the provisional squad.

Bafana Bafana will be placed in Group A alongside Mozambique, Eswatini, and Botswana. The tournament will be held in Eastern Cape from 26 June to 7 July, the same location where they won the competition in 2021 under Veli Mothwa’s captaincy, remarkably without conceding a single goal.
