Bafana Bafana head coach Stuart Baxter has named his 25-man squad to face Cape Verde in back-to-back 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Baxter kept the bulk of the squad that defeated the Super Eagles 2-0 in Uyo, Nigeria earlier this year in the opening match of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.


Scrumhalf Jano Vermaak of the DHL Stormers has been called up to the Springbok squad as replacement for Ross Cronjé, who sustained a right ankle injury in the Springboks’ 37-15 victory over Argentina on Saturday in Port Elizabeth.


Former Bafana Bafana midfielder Quinton Fortune says he wants nothing but to see the South Africa Senior Men’s National Team back on top.

Fortune has been requested by head coach Stuart Baxter to come and assist in the national team set up as one of the assistant coaches though he is still to put pen to paper.


Cell C Sharks flyhalf Curwin Bosch is in line to earn his first Springbok cap after he was named on the bench for opening match of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium in Port Elizabeth this coming Saturday.
