'We Can’t Expect Baxter To Call Up Everyone'

On Tuesday morning, Bafana Bafana head coach Stuart Baxter announced his squad for the upcoming Four Nations tournament, where they will come up against hosts Zambia, Zimbabwe and Angola later this month.

 Here is the full squad:

Goalkeepers: Itumeleng Khune (Kaizer Chiefs), Darren Keet (Bidvest Wits), Brandon Petersen (Ajax Cape Town)

Defenders: Reeve Frosler, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Sifiso Hlanti (all Bidvest Wits), Ramahlwe Mphahlele, Daniel Cardoso (both Kaizer Chiefs), Motjeka Madisha (Mamelodi Sundowns), Innocent Maela (Orlando Pirates)

Midfielders: Dean Furman, Teboho Mokoena, Aubrey Modiba (SuperSport United), Themba Zwane, Sibusiso Vilakazi (Mamelodi Sundowns), Siphesihle Ndlovu (Maritzburg United), Kamohelo Mokotjo (Brentford FC), Bongani Zungu (Amiens), Thembinkosi Lorch (Orlando Pirates), Keagan Dolly (Montpellier), Phakamani Mahlambi (Al Ahly)

Forwards: Percy Tau (Mamelodi Sundowns), Lebo Mothiba (Lille), Ryan Moon (Kaizer Chiefs)

Supporters Club members ha e voiced their opinions regarding the players who were called up, with some questioning the absence of Orlando Pirates talisman Luvuyo Memela.

"Well, it's a good squad. We can't expect the coach to call up everyone, the only thing we need is consistency #KBY." – Khaya Shozi

"(Luvuyo) Memela and (Andile) Jali are the missing link." – Maraisor

"Good team down there coach, a very good selection." – Olerilwe

"A very good squad, Baxter." – indidane

"Where is Lebohang Maboe, where is Thabo Nodada?" – thato357

"He promised to select young players but looking at this squad, there is no transformation and there is lot of old players who always play and don't give us results." – xmazibuko

What do you think of Baxter's selection?

I think our coach has selected players based on their club performances. if a player constantly performs well, why not included in the Bafana squad? We destroy our national team by forcing players who don't deserve to play. Young players must be given the opportunity to showcase their talent. In order to do well in 2022, we must start building our team now. Football politics should come to an end.

There is one thing I don't like about other bloggers here.Why should people think they have a right to challange the coache's selection?South African National team is formed by South African player,so who ever is playing today,will be replaced by others in near future.The reality is,bloggers are trying to force players from their beloved teams.Let us build BAFANA BAFANA that will be our National team,but not the pkayers of our choice.#UP THE BUCS.
