Coach Shakes Mashaba may have named one of his last Bafana Bafana squads ever when he selected 20 players to represent South Africa at the Cosafa Cup in Windhoek.

Reports yesterday suggested that Wits coach Gavin Hunt is a shoo-in to replace Mashaba at the helm of the national team, while Gordon Igesund will then step into the boots of Hunt at Wits.

Mashaba, though, is still the national boss and explained his selection of the Cosafa Cup team as follows: “After long deliberations with the other coaches regarding the Cosafa Cup, we came to the conclusion that we must use this tournament to build our future teams.

“The squad is mainly made up of U23 players and we are using [it] as part of the preparations for the Olympics.”
