Thabo Senong’s side were drawn into Group F alongside Argentina, Korea Republic and Portugal, and require a top two finish in their group to guarantee them a spot in the knockout stages of the competition, and have named four overseas-based players playing in France, Portugal, England and the Netherlands, as they attempt to achieve that.

Helman Mkhalele, who is standing in for coach Thabo Senong who ‘is dealing with a private family matter back in South Africa’, told SAFA.net, “This was not an easy process to go through given the fact that we had a very good list of talented players in our provisional squad.

“We had constant engagements with our head coach during his selection process, and that enabled us to select what we regard as the best squad for the upcoming World footballing competition.”
