AFCON

Chiefs sought-after striker targets not good enough for Broos

Chiefs sought-after striker targets not good enough for Broos.

Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos did not beat around the Bush when he explained why he selected the final 23-man squad from the 37 players he initially selected in the preliminary squad to face Morocco in the AFCON qualifiers.

Hugo Broos has excluded Themba Zwane once again along with his club teammate Andile Jali despite the fact that they've been nominated for player of the season and players player of the season for their DStv Premiership contributions.

Broos kept it short but got straight to the point as he believes that Zwane and Jali unfortunately for him doesn't add the needed value to the squad and he will not be selecting them for his 23-man squad.

Themba Zwane and Andile Jali is old familiar faces with Bafana Bafana and its understandable if their time with the national team has come to an end. The Same goes for Bongani Zungu as Broos felt that Zungu was troubled all season long and he won't be using a player that wasn't disciplined enough this season as he could disrupt the current squad with his mentality that's not right.

But the exclusion of the two newer additions strikers of Victor Letsoalo and Ashley Du Preez is something else. Ashley Du Preez was called up by Bafana Bafana in the 37-man preliminary squad, but didn't make the final 23-man squad and Broos didn't say why exactly he wasn't chosen.

Victor Letsoalo on the other hand according to Broos doesn't add value to the teams attack as Letsoalo according to the coach scores goals from the penalty spot which is something he doesn't want to count on in the matches.

Both Victor Letsoalo and Ashley Du Preez are being pursued by Kaizer Chiefs this year.

Here's Hugo Broos 23-man squad selection.

Goalkeepers: Ronwen Williams, Bruce Bvuma, Veli Mothwa

Defenders: Terrence Mashego, Taariq Fielies, Sydney Mobbie, Khuliso Mudau, Bandile Shandu, Innocent Maela, Lyle Lakay, Grant Kekana, Thibang Phete.

Midfielders: Goodman Mosele, Sphelele Sithole, Yusuf Maart, Phathutshedzo Nange

Forwards: Thembinkosi Lorch, Percy Tau, Bongokuhle Hlongwane, Lyle Foster, Evidence Makgopa, Khanyisa Mayo, Fagrie Lakay.
