Igesund announces Afcon squad

Posted: 30 December 2012 Time: 04:02 pm

Bafana Bafana coach Gordon Igesund went for experience when announcing his 23-man Africa Cup of Nations 2013 squad today at the Southern Sun Monte Casino Hotel in Fourways, Johannesburg.

The tournament runs from January 19 to February 10, 2013. The squad comprises players who have been part of Igesund’s national team set-up in the last six months.

Goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune retains his place alongside Wayne Sandilands and Senzo Meyiwa, who took the place many expected belonged to Belgium-based Darren Keet.

Igesund has chosen seven defenders: Bongani Khumalo, who will captain the side, Siyabonga Sangweni, Anele Ngcongca, Tsepo Masilela, Siboniso Gaxa, Thabo Nthethe and Thabo Matlaba.

Slovakia-based Ricardo Nunes, who has been a regular feature over the past few matches, Siyanda Xulu and Bevan Fransman missed the cut.

In the highly contested midfield, Igesund went for the experience of Kagisho Dikgacoi, Dean Furman, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Oupa Manyisa, Siphiwe Tshabalala, May Mahlangu, Thulani Serero, Lerato Chabangu and Thuso Phala.

Those left out are Thanduyise Khuboni, Teko Modise, Daine Klate, Sifiso Myeni, Delron Buckley and, in probably the biggest surprise for many fans, Andile Jali.

The firepower upfront will be provided by Bernard Parker, Tokelo Rantie, Lehlohonolo Majoro and Katlego Mphela.

“It’s very unfortunate that I could not have all the players in the squad as CAF rules stipulate that only 23 will be needed for the tournament. No matter how much we try, we can’t please all the people in the selection process but I believe we have chosen the best that will represent this country well in Afcon 2013,” Igesund says.

“We had the best of the best in the camp, with excellent players competing against each other for positions but at the end of the day we had to cut down the squad to that stipulated by the governing body. However, those players who are not in the squad should not despair as they are all on stand-by in case of injuries.”

The coach thanked the South African public for their support of the national team and appealed for more support in the coming days.

“This is not my national team; I am just the driver, so I would like to thank the public, including the media, for their continued support of the squad that has been picked up as they represent all of us.

“We are now embarking on a long and difficult mission and we cannot do it alone, your support will be very crucial to see us through,” Igesund says.

“Now that the final squad has been selected, the focus is on the tournament. Real and hard work begins for all of us. I am now able to instil my philosophy and I am confident by the time the tournament starts, I believe we will be ready and playing as a unit.”

The first assignment in the new year for Bafana Bafana is the international friendly against Norway at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday, January 8.

The squad will gather late on Wednesday, January 2, in Cape Town to prepare for the clash against the Drillos.

In the second and last practice match before the Afcon, Bafana will face Algeria in another friendly at Orlando Stadium on Saturday, January 12.

South Africa begins their Afcon campaign against Cape Verde at Soccer City on Saturday, January 19, before facing Angola and Morocco in the group stages in Durban.

What did Thuso Phala do to deserve a place in the team? When Gordon 1st came to be the coach of Bafana he said selections will be based on the form of the players but he went and contradicted himself with some of his selections. Kilogram Dikgacoi always plays kak for the national team, the less said about Bongani Khumalo the better. Hard luck to Jali cause it's clear that Igasende hates this boy with a passion. He is easily the best midfielder in the country yet a certain white player who plays in the 3rd division of a league in the UK is selected. I have nothing against Serero and Masilela but they both come from long injuries, how did they warrant a place in the team. Hai voetsek man!!!!

7 K Chiefs players according to my calculations. If it was not because of injuries we cuold have 9 K Chiefs. Iyo yo yo. That's Chiefs I know. Like it or not.

For starting line up of the 19th. 6 of Amakhosi will stast the game, another achievement.

It means that our game VS sundowns will have to postponed. That's a fact. Sorry Gould and Mathoho, you will represent us in Brazil.

Khosi 4 ever.

Soccer has just became very boring as a result of certain individuals. Why select furman,chabangu,serero n to my surprise phala over da General. Y does serero come straight frm injury into bafana b4 making it bek to da 1st team at Ajax Amsterdam? Why is furman, kg n khumalo even part of da team? I am dissapointed in Gordon n He cn kiss his job goodbye after da afcon coz He wil struggle to beat even cape verde wit da blunt cows He selected. Up da Birds....after Zeca' axing

Bongani KHUMALO PAOK (Greece)-he doesnt desreve to be in the team let alone be captain

Thuso PHALA Platinum Stars-Segolela, Lebese, Klate and Myeni a far better than this cow, Gordon must have been thinking with his balz to select him

Dean FURMAN Oldham Athletic FC (England)-Is this player really better than The Lion King Jali? It pays to be white sometimes...

Lerato CHABANGU Moroka Swallows-Teko Modise is far better much better than this drunkard, hai Gordon mara senzeni na??

Tshepo MASILELA Kaizer Chiefs-What did he do to deserve a place in the team? Really now, are we that dumb to overlook such rubbish selections?

Thulani SERERO Ajax Amsterdam (Holland)-Recently came back from injury but he gets the nod ahead of players who have been on form.

Siphiwe TSHABALALA Kaizer Chiefs-We are still paying for the opening gola of the 2010 Worl Cup.

Senzeni na Gordon mara ye!!!! hai suka!!!!

jali and Teko vele did not deserve to be in the aquad . One is already old ,he plays in drips and drabs and disappear most of the time and the other has a big chip on his shoulder ,taking dives ,faking injuries ,fighting referees . Let him watch futbol from the stands . This will help him refocus and play the way he used to play with Manyisa . The boy is a bit big headed

Defence: not enough specialist centre-backs. Nthethe lacks international experience should he have to play in the middle.
Midfield: Jali should be there, full stop. And possibly Myessi. Tshabalala should not. Phala perhaps lucky to be included.
Strikers:Very good.
Overall, I'll give Gordon 80% - this squad does give me some hope...

Im a big fan of Nsimbi , he is a tough defender . Myeni was coming right but he seems to have lost focus of late .He runs aimlessly . My superstar is Lerato Shabangu , the boy is magic , sheer class . Plays like Pienaar when Pienaar plays for Everton not the Pienaar who kept falling and less committed when playing for Bafana Bafana . It is actually good that we did not beg him . Frankly , what did Pienaar help us to win ? will someone tell me . Good riddance

It is the nature of south africans to criticise when it comes to the national team selection. I do have my opinion aswell about the selection, but I know i cannot do anything about it. I just seatback and do what i do best, which is to support bafana, rise bafana bafana rise. I believe the boys are going to do well.

sOME PEOPLE DO NOT STOP SURPRISING US BY CALLING FOR tEKO TO BE IN THE Squad . We want to win here . We hear many futbol fans claiming that Teko is unlucky ,whichever club he plays for never win a CUP . Bafana BaChiefs as some would wrongly call this National team wants to win the cup . We need more lucky players than unlucky ones . Jali is still young ,he will get his chance when he will be playing like a true professional . Need i remind you how he cost Bucs when Celtic came back from a 3-1 down to knock Bucs out of the Cup ? if Jali did not sleep there pretending to be injured and wasting time , Celtic might not have bliksem Pirates that day

The squad is not too bad besides a couple of areas. Nunes was gon be effective with those crosses and setpieces especilly with Mphela back in the fold, the guy shudn't be a fullback but a left winger coz he attacks better than he defends. Any why in the name of h** was King Jali not selected we needed a bulldog in the midfield someone to boss things not docile KG and short pass Furman. Phala was supposed to be left, besides for that i wish these guys the best of luck. BB4Afcon

On the 8th December some naive fans claimed that Tsepo Masilela will be a big highway for Pirates bcos he will not be match fit but on that day ,Klate was marked out of the game by the same experienced Masilela,they brought Ses'file Myeni ,Tsepo marked him out of the game too and infact Bucs supporters called for Ses'file Myeni to be substituted . They brought Gautrain and again Tsepo Masilela took the Gautrain's wheels out . So , what are these lousy fans talking about when they claim Masilelala is match unfit when he put the super fit Pirates players in his pocket ? By the way this is the same Masilela that has played against the Messi and the Xabi and Benzemas of this world . Hate Chiefs and leave this Masilela boy to play for this Bafana BaChiefs ,oops !!! i mean Bafana Bafana Team , jealous down niyeke ukusitshela ngabo Jali abaziwisayo here , we need serious players here

Sometimes I wonder whether Orlando Pirates is a South African team or not. If you check these negative comments from their fans you'll understand why I'm saying this. Yes I'm a Khosi fan and am happy "Mr I don't care about Bafana" Jali is not there. Am sad about exclusion of Teko and the Khumalos captainship but the coach knows better. Yes I'm a Khosi but if we are to select a captain that would lead from the back then Sangweni is my man. Aluta continuaaaaa!!!

This coach smokes his socks, how can he leave the best midfielder out of his squad? Jali has as young as he is bulldozed and outwitted all the mid fielders in the country in fact all want to beat him whenever they come up against him but they always succumb to this lion, he is the main reason pirates started winning things and if you don't believe that he is the best go back to game against Egypt and tell us what you witnessed!

Gordon always fools us about current form, what current form when players walk straight from injury in to banana? i am a patriotic south African and it is only for that reason that i will support bafana, on that note i say lets all rally behind bafana as our ravings and rantings will not get us the players we think deserve to be there. we are powerless but can be very powerful behind bafana!

Unlike Josephs who cried that he was very tired of carrying Khune's bags to the gym without playing for Bafana BaChiefs , Senzo Meyiwa definitely deserve to be in the squad . Where is Josephs now ? Mogorosi of Celtic made sure Josephs does not wear that Pirates jersey let alone that of Bfana Bafana . People can say what they like about Shabba , he performs very well for Bafana . He never fights refeeres or fake injuries like the big headed someone who are hear is heading to play in Thailand . Frankie , i like your honesty

Whatever you say about South Africa and Chiefs it doesn't matter. Win or loose all these boys will have represented you and me baba. Their jerseys will only have the South African name on it and not Chiefs, Pirates or blah-blah. Anyway, people like you should start leaving in their own country. In 96, had it not been of Dr. Khumalo we would have not won. Even in that mouth-watering game where we lost to Brazil 3-2, they won when 16v was substituted. I'm not bragging but your stupidity makes me do it. Who lifted the 96 Afcon trophy? Which team was he playing for? Who scored in our first match after isolation due to apartheid? What team was he playing for? Who scored the first goal in the world cup? Now brag about your Pirates rats. I'm waiting...

@Biggyman
Whatever you say about South Africa and Chiefs it doesn't matter. Win or loose all these boys will have represented you and me baba. Their jerseys will only have the South African name on it and not Chiefs, Pirates or blah-blah. Anyway, people like you should start leaving in their own country. In 96, had it not been of Dr. Khumalo we would have not won. Even in that mouth-watering game where we lost to Brazil 3-2, they won when 16v was substituted. I'm not bragging but your stupidity makes me do it. Who lifted the 96 Afcon trophy? Which team was he playing for? Who scored in our first match after isolation due to apartheid? What team was he playing for? Who scored the first goal in the world cup? Now brag about your Pirates rats. I'm waiting...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm very disappointed about the manner in which you analyze games.You seem to forget that in 1996 the most influential players were Mark Fish, Helman Mkhalele, Doctor Khumalo,Neil Tovey to name just a few.You seem to forget the solitary goal that was scored by Mark Fish when he single handedly destroyed the stubborn Algerians. Had he not scored that goal we wouldn't be in that final. Secondly have your facts straight, I still have the video of the Brazil vs South Africa game. When Doctor was substituted the score was 3-2 already. The introduction of Masilela and the late Tommy didn't help as the scoreline remained 3-2.

Point of Correction.....................
when Chips buy these useless players , they were already internationals ( Gaxa / Gould / Tsepo / Parker etc ) Someone is misleading them - they must not be fooled like this.

Looking at GI selection , it is clear midfielders like Yeye wont see much game time, and this lack of creativity will expose the likes of Parker. It is a fact that cannot be understood by these stupids Chips fans. All their energies are being directed at how Jali fairs in BB camp.

Having said that GI and his favoured players wont go through to next round , its a fact.

Mark my words the combination of Furman & Kg is will cost us game, these guyz lack creativity. GI, the central midle-field win you games and with a strong one, you are domed to fail.

The best we have would have been the combination of Jali & Yeye.

Coach you haven't got my support at all. I was one of the people who believed in you before your appointment and you have sinced disappointed me due to the fact that you have consistantly chosen to favourates ahead of deserving players.

Jali is the best we have whether you like it or not, I hope one day we will find out why you hate him so much. On that note I have decided to withdraw my support for bafana bafana until further notice. I will be going to the stadium and for your information Coach Gordon, I won't come close to Bafana x 2 matches.

Oho ,its pathetic this moron thinks just becos diane klate won cups he is entitled to walk straight into the lineup. Didn't u say football is a team sport meaning diane klate wasnt playing alone while at suppersport and gorilla faces fc? Theres a reason why parreira despised a player like klate: he can't dribble his way around a corpse so how is he clever? He is a weakling whose physique is worse than shabba. Hes only good for corner kicks when luck is on his side. He can't hold on to the damn ball.he can't adapt to tactics. Not even a single team from uzbekistan,vietnam ,thailand and indonesia has shown interest in that thing. Even right footed players like serero would be more effective at the left wing. Shabba might be a cow of note and not challenged enough but wat do u expect when hes competing with garbage like klate?
Diane Klate is easily one of the most overrated players in history.

I am not very much concerned of those I feel should have been there but aint, as its normal in football for different people to prefer different players as football is a game of opinions. Of late Sangweni`s performances havent been what we know of him, even though his quality may not be questionable. Khumalo has also not been that I know of at SSU since his European 'vacation'. Going to this tournament the players mentioned are my concern. Lets hope for improvement from them, otherwise we might be in trouble.

I am done arguing who is selected n who is not but for Gordon to take a grade 12 student to write a board 1 exam is just pathetic while people have honours in the field.

I am a South African who refuse unfair treatment, Masilela did even play 5 games this season, Parker picked an injury in the last games, we all Serero is not fit, if Ajax does use him in the first team football then who are we. Mpela has just returned from a long injury, he goes straight to the team.

Rantie is not a regular starter, he always come from the bench.

When this Gordon 1st took over Bafana he said he will only consider players who are fit and on form, but he went and did the opposite. Correct me if i'm wrong but the players i'm about to mention don't deserve to be in the team:

Thuso Phala-Is he better than Myeni, Klate hell even George Lebese is better than this cow.



Thulani Serero- Same as Masilela hes even worse because he hasnt even played competetive 1st team football. I won't deny that this boy is very talented but will he really perfom at the cuo of nations?

Bongani Khumalo- The only good thing about him is his articulation of the queens language other than that he deserves to be dropped let alone captain the team. Id rather have Khune captaining the team than this cow.

Tshepo Masilela-He comes from a long term injury and he played a few games, so his selection still boggles the mind. Based on what Gordon said when he took over Bafana, Masilela doesnt deserve a place in the squad.

Hard luck to Jali, Klate, Teko, Fransman, Matoho, Myeni, Erasmus, Maluleke, Jele, Lebese, Bibo and any other deserving player i might have forgot to mention. I don't wanna say anything about Shabba, lest i become insulted by these chimps, but we all know that he is SAFA's favourite son. We are still paying for that world cup goal...
Kilogram Dikgacoi-He has failed us many times, what has he done to warrant selection? He failed under Perreira and Pitso and hes still failing us with flying colours.

Dean Furman-I have nothing against him but is he really better than King Jali and George Maluleke? To top it off he plays in the English 3rd division and his team are amongst the relegation candidates.

Thabo Ntethe-An unfit Matoho is way better than this cow, Bevan Fransman should have been chosen instead of this so called Mr consistency.
