Bafana Bafana Hugo Broos has named his 31-man squad for the upcoming Fifa Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifiers against Zimbabwe and Ghana.
The South African national team will face Zimbabwe on 3 September at NSS in Harare, before flying back home to face Ghana on 6 September at the FNB Stadium.
New coach Broos will be on the touchline for the first time after his assistants filled in for him while he completed his vaccinations in his home country of Belgium.
Broos will be hoping to get the qualifying game off to a good start and has included a mix of experience and young players in the squad.
“My way of working is that we will give a chance to young players,” Broos told the media at his press briefing at the Safa House on Thursday.
“My ambition is that we go to Qatar next year and that is the ambition and mentality I want to infuse in the players”
