Ngcobo retains his place in the team.

Hugo Broos has explained the reason he snubbed Luther Singh from his recent Bafana squad because he had some passport issue last time around, questioning the players attitude. Broos cut his 34-man preliminary squad to 23 players for the double header against Ethiopia in October as they continue to pave their way to Qatar 2022.

One of the notable absentees from the squad was Singh, with Broos revealing that he wasn’t happy about his passport issues, which also saw him get limited game time over the last few weeks.

The mentor was then asked why Njabulo Ngcobo was in the Bafana squad despite having had very little game time at club level with Kaizer Chiefs so far. Broos explained that attitude is very important to him and reminded everyone that he is determined to keep the squad as young as possible.

“This has something to do with attitude also,” Broos responded

“You know that your passport is not valid anymore, you know it months before, the same thing in the 34 players (preliminary squad) happened with Pule Mmodi. We contacted him, but he says he doesn't have a passport."

“I cannot select him, he doesn’t have a valid passport. This is an attitude you need to have as a professional player."

“And for Luther Singh, you know it months before that your passport is not valid anymore. So why wait until the last day."

“Then you lose 10 days and then you come in your club again and the coach is not happy because you are 10 days too late and you don’t play any games."

“You need to have a professional attitude also. So I hope he learned a lot from this.”

South Africa will take on Ethiopia both home and away and Broos wants nothing less than 6 points fron the two games.
