Orlando Pirates duo Menzi Masuku and Gift Motupa have joined the South Africa Under-23 squad at the U-23 Africa Cup of Nations in Senegal.
Masuku and Motupa were both active in Pirates’ 1-0 defeat to Etoile du Sahel in the CAF Confederation Cup Final on Sunday afternoon, and flew out to Dakar on Monday morning to join their national teammates.
Owen Da Gama now has a complete squad of 21 players in camp, while defender Denwin Farmer has been ruled out of this afternoon’s all-important Group A second-round clash with Zambia.
South Africa are currently bottom of the group following their opening 3-1 defeat to hosts Senegal on Saturday, while Tunisia are currently in second place following their 2-1 victory over Zambia.
Senegal face Tunisia in a battle for top spot in the group, directly after South Africa and Zambia face off at the Leopold Sedar Senghor Stadium.
