Stuart Baxter Is Travelling Around South Africa Ahead Of The COSAFA Cup
Stuart Baxter is currently in Cape Town meeting clubs as he assesses who will be available for the upcoming COSAFA Cup next month.
Bafana Bafana, who are the reigning champions after winning it last year, will go into the tournament in the quarter-finals against the winners of Group A, with Angola, Mauritius, Malawi or Tanzania awaiting them on July 2nd.
Baxter is expected to name his squad for the tournament at some point next week and SAFA’s Communications Manager, Dominic Chimhavi, has confirmed that he is currently doing the rounds to speak to different clubs in the country about the availability of players.
Chimhavi explained that Baxter is in the Mother City at present, presumably talking to Cape Town City and Ajax Cape Town and that he is also meeting with other clubs around the country to discuss the COSAFA Cup.
It remains to be seen what sort of side Baxter will name for the COSAFA as he continues to try and expand the pool of players available for the national team, however, he has hinted that there will be a number of youngsters involved.
The tournament will take place in South Africa’s North West.
