The first match against Ghana is on Thursday in Soweto at the FNB Stadium. Ahead of the game, Bafana Bafana coach Molefi Ntseki added 5 more players to the squad for the qualifiers.
Admittedly, Kermit Erasmus and Bradley Grobler have had to be removed from the squad due to injury. The have been replaced by Thabiso Kutumela and Lebogang Maboe.
Ntseki has also added Vincent Pule, Thabiso Nodada and Mothobi Mvala as midfield reinforcements to the squad.
The original squad announced earlier this month was extremely vilified by the South African public. People were not happy with the omissions of Vincent Pule and Lebogang Maboe.
The inclusions of Mothobi Mvala and Thabo Nodada have seemed to please portions of the football fraternity.
