The tournament, which features Mzansi's U23 stars and two overaged players, will take place in August, and Amaglug-glug will take on Brazil, Denmark and Iraq in the group stage.

South Africa's most capped goalkeeper, Itumeleng Khune, has been called up to make the trip to South America, and he is the joint most valuable player in the team, alongside Kaizer Chiefs teammate Erick Mathoho.

Rivaldo Coetzee is the only player present on the list who doesn't play for the Big Three, and he is joined by two former Ajax Cape Town teammates of his.
