Mamelodi Sundowns' Brian Baloyi has been called up to Bafana Bafana as a replacement for Orlando Pirates' Moeneeb Josephs who suffered an injury at the weekend.
Disclosing this, Bafana media officer Sifiso Cele said 17 of the 23 players had arrived at their Pretoria camp ahead of the 2010 Afcon qualifier against Equatorial Guinea at the weekend. The others are expected in camp by tomorrow.
Baloyi, who has been standing between the posts following the hip injury to the Brazilians’ No 1 Calvin Marlin, last played for Bafana more than two seasons ago.
Bloemfontein Celtic minder Shu-Aib Walters has also been called up by national team coach Joel Santana.
Speaking to KickOff.com while on his way to Pretoria to join the rest of Bafana players in camp, Walters said was he was still on Cloud Nine about his call-up.
“I got call at around 3 o’clock notifying me that I must join Bafana in camp, but I am still feeling all mixed up; I’m both excited and nervous about the call-up.”
