7 Soldiers Left Behind As Pirates Prepare For War

Orlando Pirates have omitted seven players from the travelling 18-man squad to face RS Berkane in the CAF Confederations Cup final On Friday.

Click through the gallery to view the 7 Pirates players that are set to miss the clash against Berkane.

It is the Buccaneers’ first foray this far into the competition in seven years and they have selected a strong squad to do battle at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo, Nigeria.

As is now common knowledge, Pirates will be without the services of defender Paseka Mako who is recovering from a long-term injury.

But word reaching the Siya crew is that a number of fringe players who have featured scarcely for Pirates this season have also been left out of the travelling squad altogether.

The likes of Tebogo Tlolane and Nkanyiso Zungu, both of who could be on their way out of the club at the end of the season having seen very little in terms of game time, are amongst those who remained in South Africa.

Meanwhile, Wayde Jooste, who took part in full training on Tuesday before the club jetted out to Nigeria has also been left out.

It is the first time Pirates take on Berkane and will be hoping to overcome their Algerian counterparts with a passionate Nigerian support base backing them.

Kick-off for the match is at 21:00.
