Erasmus, Makaringe and Motshwari misses out on the AFCON Squad

Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter announced a 23-man squad on Sunday for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt later this month. Baxter had to trim the squad from thirty players just before the team departs for a mini-camp in Dubai today. Overseas-based defenders Joel Untersee and Nikola Tavares were not considered due to paper work issues, while Rivaldo Coetzee went to visit his ill mother but never reported back for camp. Keagan Dolly withdrew after he was injured during the Cosafa Cup. Baxter only had to drop Kermit Erasmus, Fortune Makaringe and Ben Motshwari for the final squad.
