FIFA World Cup

Confirmed: Chiefs has released six key players


Kaizer Chiefs have their work cut out thus far this season. One thought the reintroduction of Stuart Baxter to the technical team will make things a bit easier for Amakhosi. As he has been there before and has done the deed. Unfortunately, his second stint has been immensely challenging to say the least. And that has led the Chiefs’ hopefuls to criticize him on every game and even calling for his release. As they feel that they’ve seen enough in the past six games across all competitions. 

It seems like the Chiefs management has stuck by Baxter despite the outside noise. One thing that Baxter can be proud of is that there are current players in his squad that has been released for national duty. In total Amakhosi have released six of their key players to represent their respective countries for the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers. The Englishman has been able to work with these players and they’ve stood out from the rest. Hence they’re constantly part of the starting eleven, surely his impact has been felt by certain players who have responded well to his techniques, tactics, game plans, etc. Different countries are battling to go to Qatar for the next year’s massive event in football and they need their best players on the pitch at all times to get those all-important wins.

Chiefs will be without Khama Billiat who went to join the Zimbabwe national team, while Daniel Akpeyi has made it to the Nigerian national team setup for his impressive work behind goals. Then four Chiefs players have been chosen to represent South Africa against tough back-to-back encounters against Ethiopia in Group G. Amakhosi players Bruce Bvuma, Njabulo Ngcobo, Njabulo Blom and Sfiso Hlanti made it to Hugo Broos’ 23-man squad. The matches will be played on the 9th of October away, then Bafana will return home to play Ethiopia on the 12th of October at FNB Stadium. The great thing is that supporters will be allowed for the first time in the stadium in Mzansi after the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country. However, only fully vaccinated supporters will be allowed to watch the match in the stadium.
