Mashaba Explains Dolly's Bafana Omission

Bafana Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba has explained the reason behind omitting in-form Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder, Keagan Dolly, from his latest national team squad to play Cameroon.

Mashaba: This Is A Must Win Game

The 65-year-old was widely criticised for his selection policy, including the decision to leave Dolly out of his squad following the Downs man's blistering performances for his side this season. Mashaba has now explained that he doesn’t want to create unnecessary distractions for Dolly, who will be part of the South African Under 23 team which will be playing a friendly, ahead of the 2016 Rio Olympic Games in August.

“It's true we considered players like Dolly but around the same time of the Cameroon game, they will be playing a friendly game as they prepare for the Olympics so we didn't want to distract him,” he told the Siya crew.

Mashaba further added that younger players are very much part of his long-term plans as he hopes to build a team capable of qualifying for the 2022 World Cup.

“As time goes on we will consider him and the other youngsters as well. We are still working on the Vision 2022 and those young players are part of that vision," Mashaba explained.

Bafana Squad Omissions

Other notable absentees from Mashaba’s Bafana squad include the likes of Moeneeb Josephs, Lorenzo Gordinho, Thabo Rakhale and Kermit Erasmus.
