Bafana squad picked for AFCON qualifiers

South Africa will soon resume their bid to securing a place in Africa’s biggest football spectacle, the TotalEnergies Africa Cup of Nations, when they face Liberia later this month.

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has named a 35-member preliminary squad for the AFCON qualifiers Group K battle.

This iis a must-win for both teams if they’re looking to finish on top of the group, currently led by Morocco.

The selected players are expected to go into camp in Johannesburg on Sunday, March 19.

Broos’ squad play the Liberians at Orlando Stadium, in Johannesburg, on Friday 24 March (kick off is at 6pm) and then travel by charter flight to Monrovia to tackle the West Africans on 28 March 2023.

They return back to Johannesburg a day after the away match.

The preliminary squad will be trimmed to 23 players when Broos announces his final list for the two matches next week.

Here is the preliminary Bafana Bafana squad:
