Bafana’s Afcon Squad Numbers

Bafana Bafana begin their 2013 African Cup of Nations campaign on January 19 when they open the continental show piece at the National Stadium (FNB Stadium) against Cape Verde.

Gordon Igesund named his 23-man South African Afcon squad last year, on December 30, as the coach prepares to lead his team on home soil.

 

With the squad confirmed and in full preparation for the tournament, the Siya crew can reveal the squad numbers the players will be sporting for the Afcon.

 

First choice goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune will be wearing jersey number 16, while Wayne Sandilands sports the number one jersey.

 

National team captain, defender Bongani Khumalo, will have the number 14 on his back, while central defensive partner Siyabonga Sangweni sports number 21.

 

Thulani Serero has been handed the number 10 jersey, with a lot of the nation’s hopes resting on the Ajax Amsterdam player’s shoulders.
