Cole Alexander replaces injured Aubrey Ngoma in Bafana Bafana Cosafa Cup squad

Posted: 30 June 2017 Time: 12:25

SuperSport United midfielder Cole Alexander has been called up as a replacement for Aubrey Ngoma in the Bafana Bafana Cosafa Cup squad.

Alexander returms to the national team for the first time since making his debut in a 3-1 friendly international win over Swaziland in March last year.

The 27-year-old central midfielder has struggled with injury in his first season at Matsatsantsa, after arriving from Polokwane City ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

However, he will now reunite with former coach Stuart Baxter following a knee injury sustained by Ngoma in training on Thursday, subsequently ruling the Cape Town City star out of the tournament.

Bafana kick off their title defence in a quarter-final clash against Tanzania at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Sunday.
