Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba, experienced difficulties with getting all the players he called up for the game against Cote d’Ivoire on Sunday.

Brilliant Khuzwayo and Mulomowandau Mathoho were pulled out of the initial squad after Kaizer Chiefs refused to release them, while Bidvest Wits said no to the national team for Thulani Hlatshwayo and Jabulani Shongwe.
