Mashaba Explains Bafana Selection Criteria

Following the announcement of the Bafana Bafana squad that will play against Gambia in an AFCON qualifier on June 4, coach Shakes Mashaba has explained why he selected the players that were named.

Mashaba’s squad features several new players and he said that they were selected due to their current form.

"There are many good players but we had to look at the form of the players in those positions,” he told the Siya crew. “We selected players on form.”

The 65-year-old went on to explain the selection of Polokwane City’s Thobani Mncwango and Orlando Pirates’ Brighton Mhlongo, who are featuring in his team for the first time.

“You know we added Thobani because he is doing well, scoring goals, and Brighton Mhlongo has also been doing very well for Pirates and that's good for the team," Mashaba concluded.

South Africa take on Gambia on June 4 at 16:00.
