Bidvest Wits midfielder Matty Pattison has been called up to the national squad for Chan to replace the injured Jabulani Shongwe.
Mamelodi Sundowns' Shongwe damaged his groin in yesterday's 1-0 victory over National First Division side Milano United in a practice match in Cape Town.
The 27-year-old Pattison, who was once on the books of Premier League pair Newcastle United and Norwich, has two international caps.
Bafana Bafana will open the tournament against Mozambique at Cape Town Stadium on Saturday.
