EXTRA TIME: Twitter reacts to Bruce Bvuma's Bafana Bafana selection

Stuart Baxter has named his South African men's national team squad for the crunch game away to Libya, and there's a number of surprises

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.
