PSL Stars To Haunt Bafana As Another AFCON Squad Named?

Bafana Bafana will be hoping that players from their own national leagues don’t prove to be their downfall at the Africa Cup of Nations, with Namibia naming plenty in their final squad.
 
 
Stuart Baxter’s side will face the Namibians in their second game of this year’s AFCON in Egypt in a game that is considered by many as possibly their best chance of picking up three points.
 
It will not be easy against the Brave Warriors though, especially with eight of the players named by Ricardo Mannetti are currently playing in the Premier Soccer League either in the Absa Premiership or National First Division at present.
 
The big names in the Namibian squad include a couple of 2018/19’s in-form players, Deon Hotto and Peter Shalulile, as well as Benson Shilongo who has been shining for Ismaily in Egypt, and Blackurn Rovers’ young Ryan Nambe who played 34 games in England this season.
 
Goalkeepers: 
Ratanda Mbazuvara (African Stars, NAM) , Loydt Kazapua (Maccabi FC, SA), Max Mbaeva (Golden Arrows, SA). 
 
Defenders: 
Ryan Nyambe (Blackburn Rovers, ENG), Larry Horaeb (Baroka FC, SA), Denzil Haoseb (Highlands Park, SA), Ivan Kamberipa (African Stars, NAM), Charles Hambira (Tura Magic, NAM), Riaan Hanamub (Jomo Cosmos, SA)
 
Midfielders: 
Ananias Gebhardt (Tura Magic, NAM), Absalom Iimbondi (Tigers FC, NAM), Willy Stephanus, Petrus Shitembi (both Lusaka Dynamos, ZAM), Ronald Ketjijere, Marcel Papama (both African Stars, NAM), Dynamo Fredericks (Black Africa, NAM), Deon Hotto (Bidvest Wits, SA), Joslyn Kamatuka (Cape Umoya United, SA).
 
Strikers: 
Benson Shilongo (Ismaily, EGY), Peter Shalulile (Highlands Park, SA), Itamunua Keimuine (Dire Dawa City, ETH), Manfred Starke (Carl Zeiss Jena, GER), Isaskar Gurirab (Life Fighters, NAM).
 
 
Bafana and Namibia will face off on June 28 in Cairo, in between their games against Ivory Coast and Morocco respectively.
