Bafana will gather for camp on Sunday, March 18 and will withdraw for Zambia on March 20. They will be back in South Africa on March 27
Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has declared a 25-man squad that will partake in the four-country competition in Zambia in the not so distant future.
The tournament will take place between March 22-24, and the Bafana mentor will take his strongest possible squad, including several European-based stars.
Bongani Zungu, Keagan Dolly, Lebo Mothiba and Kamohelo Mokotjo have all been called up alongside Phakamani Mahlambi, who is on the books of Egyptian giants Al Ahly.
As expected, there are a few new faces in the squad. Teboho Mokoena of SuperSport United, Siphesihle Ndlovu of Maritzburg United, Brendon Petersen of Ajax Cape Town as well as Orlando Pirates duo of Innocent Maela and Thembinkosi Lorch have all made the cut.
Kaizer Chiefs defender Daniel Cardoso makes his return to the national team setup following a series of impressive performances under Steve Komphela.
Mamelodi Sundowns centre-back Motjeka Madisha and Chiefs striker Ryan Moon have also been rewarded for their superb displays this season.
