SA Stars Abroad & Downs Dominate Bafana Squad

Stuart Baxter announced the first Bafana Bafana squad of his second tenure on Thursday, and the side was dominated by players in Europe and Mamelodi Sundowns stars!

South Africa will play Nigeria in their opening Africa Cup of Nations qualifier next month, and today we're focusing on which clubs most of Baxter's players represent.

Six players in the latest team represent Mzansi in Europe, with those names being Keagan Dolly, Andile Jali, Kamohelo Mokotjo, Bongani Zungu, Tokelo Rantie and Kermit Erasmus.

It's important that Bafana is represented by players starring in tough leagues across the globe, as they bring more experience to the team.

Four players in the side play for Kaizer Chiefs, while only two Orlando Pirates footballers are included in the set-up.

Five Downs players are involved in Baxter's team, while, like the Buccaneers, SuperSport United and Cape Town City are represented by two players each.

PSL champions Bidvest Wits see three of their players make the side, while just one player, Rivaldo Coetzee, represents Ajax Cape Town in the squad.

Are you happy with the latest Bafana squad?
