Vera Pauw, the head coach of Banyana Banyana has selected 22 players for the 2015 All Africa Games to take place in Congo between 03 and 08 September.
The coach has kept the majority of the players that have done well in the last few games. Two players will not travel to Congo as Banyana Banyana is only allowed 20 players for the tournament.
Pauw was not able to get some of the players she wanted – all the overseas-based players have been left out because the tournament comes outside the FIFA Calendar.
Jermaine Seoposenwe, Robyn Moodaly, Kelso Peskin, Kaylin Swart were not released by their clubs as well as Thembi Kgatlana. Goalkeeper Roxanne Barker from Iceland is also a doubtful starter.
The Sasol-sponsored Banyana Banyana have been draw in Group B alongside Cameroon, Ghana and Egypt while hosts Congo are in Group A with Nigeria, Tanzania and Ivory Coast.
The South Africans open their encounter against Cameroon on Monday, 7 September at the Stade de l’unite 3 at 17h00 local time in Brazzaville (18h00 SA Time).
