Players Baxter Could Drop From Bafana

Stuart Baxter will see his Bafana Bafana side play Nigeria in their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month, but could these players get axed by the new national team boss?

Despite not being first choice when he was named in the 25-man squad to face Guinea and Angola, Shu-Aib Walters could be left out of the side, and perhaps be replaced by SuperSport United's Ronwen Williams or Ajax Cape Town's Brandon Peterson.

Diamond Thopola could also be dropped due to his recent form for Chippa United, while it seems a given that Bidvest Wits attacker Phakamani Mahlambi and Kaizer Chiefs defender Erick Mathoho will left out because of recent injuries.

Mahlambi's hamstring injury saw him withdraw from Amajita's U20 FIFA World Cup campaign in South Korea – a great shame as he could've added huge quality to the side.

Mathoho sustained a concussion in Chiefs' latest match, and it was recently announced he would be absent from his club's final league game of the campaign this weekend.

Ajax Amsterdam's Thulani Serero could also face the chop due to his lack of game time in Holland, while Andile Jali and Lars Veldwijk's places in the team could also be up for debate.

Which players would you drop from the last Bafana squad?
