Following the departure of nine Kaizer Chiefs players, including goalie coach Lee Baxter, a further two Glamour Boys will be moving to North Africa in the near future. The good news is that these two will definitely return to Naturena!
On Wednesday, Bafana Bafana held a training session in Rabat, Morocco, ahead of their critical away 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier against Morocco on Thursday, June 9 at the Prince Moulay Abdellah Stadium.
The only two Kaizer Chiefs players in the Bafana Bafana team, goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma and midfielder Phathutshedzo Nange, attended the training session at Sturrock Park on the University of the Witwatersrand's Johannesburg campus team for Saturday's critical match against the Atlas Lions After Zimbabwe was shockingly thrown out of qualifying, South Africa has been placed in Group K, which also contains Liberia and consists of only three teams.
The top two teams in the final standings will compete in the AFCON next year in the Ivory Coast.
Broos said that first-choice goalkeeper Ronwen Williams was limited by an injury he sustained during SuperSport United's DStv Premiership triumph over Orlando Pirates on Monday.
The Belgian coach, on the other hand, is certain that Williams will be ready to face the Moroccans.
Broos voiced confidence in back-up goalkeepers Bvuma and AmaZulu's Veli Mothwa if he is absent.
