Head coach Shakes Mashaba has called-up Mamelodi Sundowns’ Tiyani Mabunda in place of the injured Dean Furman, who was released from Bafana Bafana camp yesterday.
Bafana will face Senegal on Saturday, 12 November, in the country’s second 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter which is set to take place at the Peter Mokaba Stadium in Polokwane.
Along with Sundowns’ Langerman, who also sustained an injury, SuperSport United's Furman was released from the national team camp after his injury proved to be more serious than originally thought. Now that the player will not be able to feature in the encounter, Masandawana’s Mabunda is set to step in for the 28-year-old.
“Mabunda arrived in Bafana camp last night (9 November),” a source told the Siya crew.
Bafana confirmed all injuries on their Twitter account yesterday, with only Furman and Langerman being unable to participate in the upcoming encounter. However, Andile Jali and Daine Klate are nursing injuries, and it remains to be seen whether they will be fit enough to make an appearance on Saturday.
