Alexander to miss Plate final
Posted: 6 July 2017 Time: 13:52
Cole Alexander has returned to SuperSport United and will miss Bafana Bafana's COSAFA Cup Plate final against Namibia tomorrow.
The 27-year-old central midfielder was a late call-up by Stuart Baxter to replace the injured Aubrey Ngoma.
Alexander started South Africa's first game of the campaign, a quarter-final fixture that turned out to be a losing endeavour against Tanzania.
Following that 1-0 defeat to the East Africans, Bafana Bafana found themselves in the Plate semi-final which they won 2-0 against Botswana with Alexander entering the fray in the second-half as they looked to preserve their lead.
