Tournament head coach David Notoane believes that this tournament is a platform for players to display their talent in order for them to be noticed by senior team coach Stuart Baxter.

“This is your time to shine. This platform allows you to raise your hand and be noticed in the Southern African region of football. The Cosafa Cup allows you as players to decide whether you want to be international stars, or remain as development players,” said Notoane.

Bafana Bafana will hold their first training session at Sugar Ray Xulu on Monday afternoon and will be without European based Keagan Dolly and Liam Jordan who will only arrive later in the day.

“We are happy to report that 21 players are currently in the camp and the last two will join us later today. We will hold two training sessions before playing Zambia in a practice match on Wednesday so that the players can get a feel of the Durban atmosphere ahead of our match against Botswana this coming Sunday,” concluded Notoane.
