Kaizer Chiefs, October 2018
Amakhosi will have at least seven players at this year's Afcon finals. Here is the list of the confirmed Afcon-bound players

  • Daniel Cardoso of Kaizer Chiefs challenged by Thembinkosi Mbamba of TS Galaxy, May 2019

    #1 Daniel Cardoso

    Cardoso was undoubtedly on top of his game two seasons ago, but despite having an average season with Kaizer Chiefs this past campaign, he finds himself in the Bafana Bafana squad for the Afcon 2019 finals.  
  • Kaizer Chiefs, Bruce Bvuma

    #2 Bruce Bvuma

    The young goalkeeper got the chance to impress as soon as Ernst Middendorp rejoined Amakhosi toward the end of 2018. He featured in all Chiefs' Nedbank Cup matches, and Baxter saw the need to include him in his final squad after working with him during the previous Cosafa Cup editions. 
  • Kaizer Chiefs Ramahlwe Mphahlele, February 2019

    #3 Ramahlwe Mphahlele

    Mphahlele spent the better part of last season injured, but he really worked his socks off when he got back into the Amakhosi team. Baxter was criticsed for overlooking Thapelo Morena, but in the end, the 65-year-old mentor opted for the tried and tested Mphahlele. 
  • Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana, Kaizer Chiefs, May 2019

    #4 Andriamirado “Dax” Andrianarimanana

    Dax may have not been a regular in his first season with Kaizer Chiefs, but he was influential in helping Madagascar qualify for the Afcon 2019 finals. It is therefore not surprising that he will be in Egypt
  • Khama Billiat, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2019

    #5 Khama Billiat

    Billiat is one of Zimbabwe's main men and probably one of the first names on Norman Mapeza's final squad. He scored a number of goals for Chiefs throughout the season, and was instrumental in ensuring the Warriors' qualification for the 2019 Afcon finals.  
  • Teenage Hadebe, Kaizer Chiefs, July 2018

    #6 Teenage Hadebe

    Hadebe did just enough to make the cut in Zimbabwe's final squad, and he will hope to use this as a stepping stone to achieving greater things in his career. 
  • Daniel Akpeyi, Kaizer Chiefs, February 2019

    #7 Daniel Akpeyi

    Akpeyi is flying to Egypt with the Super Eagles of Nigeria despite the limited game time after joining Kaizer Chiefs from Chippa United at the start of the year.
