SA Players Abroad Who Don't Get A Bafana Look-In

Many have criticised Shakes Mashaba for his squad selections for Bafana Bafana, and there are many South African footballers who are playing abroad who aren't getting a look-in. Do you know who they are?

Gordon Igesund's strength was that he discovered unknown talent from Mzansi playing overseas, and he tried with all his might to have them represent Bafana.

Shakes has taken a different approach, and many fans have questioned why he often selects players who haven't played in ages. 

Tokelo Rantie and Thamsanqa Gabuza continue to remain in his plans despite a lack of game time and poor form respectively, while Kermit Erasmus was famously overlooked despite being on form for Orlando Pirates. 

Kamohelo Mokotjo even retired from the squad temporarily as he was not considered for an actual playing role when selected, despite being one of Mzansi's best players last term.
