Bafana Place Two Players On Standby

Stuart Baxter has two players on standby for the Bafana Bafana squad, should Kamohelo Mokotjo be unable to feature against Nigeria next month.
 
 
Mokotjo, who has been playing with his left hand strapped up for a number of months, went under the knife this week to have an operation on his thumb and is now a doubt for South Africa’s first African Cup of Nations qualifiers.
 
Baxter, who named his first squad on Thursday, confirmed that he had called the 26-year-old up knowing that he was undergoing surgery, although explained that they do have backup players in the wings in case he cannot play.
 
Speaking to the media, the Englishman said, “We have had a medical flag from Mokotjo, saying that he very probably will have an operation on his hand. He’s selected in the squad because we think that he can train while recuperating and there is still a good chance that he could be available.
 
“In lieu of not having a full medical report we are calling him to the squad, if we then get a full medical report that rules him out then we do have two players on standby. I won’t give those names because we’re waiting for the full medical.”
 
Mokotjo had a fine season with FC Twente as he once again cemented his spot as one of the Eredivisie’s top midfielder’s, however, he will be wary of aggravating the injury as he looks likely to make a move away from his club during the upcoming transfer window.
 
The Bafana team will assemble at camp on June 4th and will fly to Nigeria on the 7th.
