Downs Teammate Replaces Kekana In Bafana Squad

Mamelodi Sundowns’ Hlompho Kekana has been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad due to the player still nursing an injury and has been replaced by his Masandawana teammate.

Head Coach, Stuart Baxter, announced his 25-man Bafana squad last month, May 25, with the 31-year-old forming part of the Englishman’s midfield contingent.

However, Kekana recently sustained an injury during one of Sundowns’ Absa Premiership clashes last month and was subsequently sidelined during the team’s final league clash last month and the CAF Champions League encounter on the weekend.

Now, the South African Football Association has confirmed that the player’s teammate, Tiyani Mabunda has replaced Kekana in the national team squad.

Mabunda was not selected in the official 25-man list, however, indications are that the 29-year-old was part of Baxter’s backup contingent.

It was recently confirmed that FC Twente’s Kamohelo Mokotjo was withdrawn from the national team squad, with Lebogang Phiri reporting to camp in his absence.

The squad reported to Bafana camp on Sunday, June 04, where they began preparations for country’s upcoming Africa Cup Of Nations’ qualifier against Nigeria on June 10.
