Parreira makes final cut in Bafana

01/06/2010 at 10:06 14 comments

Bafana Bafana coach Carlos Parreira has made his final selection for South Africa’s national football team that will compete in the 2010 FIFA World Cup. He said it was difficult to make a decision, but that chosing was inevitable. “All 28 players left in the squad deserve to be there, but due to Fifa rules squads can only consist of 23 players,” he said.

“Each player has worked hard and shown commitment, especially those who were with me on the three camps in Durban, Brazil and Germany. I really feel for the boys who are going to be dropped.”

The Bafana Bafana players that were not selected to be part of the final football squad are Benni McCarthy, Rowen Fernandez, Innocent Mdledle, Bryce Moon and Franklin Cale.

With Parreira’s decision, the final Bafana Bafana squad that will compete in the 2010 Football World Cup comprises of the following 23 players:

Goalkeepers: Itumeleng Khune (Kaizer Chiefs), Moeneeb Josephs (Orlando Pirates), Shu-Aib Walters (Maritzburg United), .

Defenders: Matthew Booth, Siboniso Gaxa (Mamelodi Sundowns), Bongani Khumalo (SuperSport United), Tsepo Masilela (Maccabi Haifa, Israel), Aaron Mokoena (Portsmouth, England), Anele Ngcongca (Racing Genk, Belgium), Siyabonga Sangweni (Golden Arrows), Lucas Thwala (Pirates).

Midfielders: Surprise Moriri, Lance Davids (Ajax Cape Town), Kagisho Dikgacoi (Fulham, England), Teko Modise (Pirates), Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siphiwe Tshabalala (both Kaizer Chiefs), Steven Pienaar (Everton, England), Macbeth Sibaya (Rubin Kazan, Russia).

Strikers: Katlego Mphela (Sundowns), Siyabonga Nomvethe (Moroka Swallows), Bernard Parker (FC Twente, Holland).
