The biggest surprise from all Baxter's selections is that of Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Bruce Bvuma.
With teammate Itumeleng Khune out injured, Chiefs second choice keeper Bvuma got the national team call-up even though he has very little Premier Soccer League experience.
As a result there are fans upset that Baxter didn't call-up other players due to a lack of game time, such as Cape Town City's Kermit Erasmus.
Then there's the banter between Chiefs and Orlando Pirates fans. Amakhosi fans are pointing out how former Bafana Bafana player Brilliant Khuzwayo moved to Bucs to improve his opportunities.
Unfortunately, Khuzwayo has fallen out of contention for Bafana, and Bvuma has ironically found a route to the national team.
If Kermit didn't get a call up for not playing enough games, then people can ask about Bvuma.— NKULULEKO SBU DLADLA (@NkuleSbuDladla) March 11, 2019
It doesn't make sense, I'm sorry.
Oh well... good luck to Bvuma. Will encourage Mbatha to work even harder and his turn will come...#Usuthu_Unite— Lunga Sokhela (@Lunga_Sokhela) March 11, 2019
I’m sure Bruce Bvuma is also shocked! 😂#Bafana— YΛMZΛ (@yamzafinisher) March 11, 2019
