Bafana coach Gordon Igesund has retained some of his regular players for this year’s edition of the Cosafa Cup to be held in Zambia.
The Cosafa Cup is scheduled for July 6 and although the tournament doesn't fall under Fifa calendar, Igesund included majority of his PSL-based players.
Despite reports that Kaizer Chiefs have decided against releasing their star players, Igesund has gone on to include them in his squad.
Bafana’s first match is on July 13 against the Group A winners, and should they win that match then they will play in the semi-finals of the Cosafa Cup still to be decided by the number points accumulated during the first round.
