Molefi Ntseki has announced his first Bafana Bafana squad as interim coach having replaced Stuart Baxter, who resigned earlier this month.
Bafana will travel to Zambia on September 7 for a friendly match at the Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka. SAFA are still in the process of searching for a permanent coach while Ntseki, who himself might very well be keen on the job, takes over the reins.
He worked as Baxter’s assistant for two years and was part of the technical team at the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt, where Bafana reached the quarterfinals.
