Hugo Broos recently brought joy to Kaizer Chiefs fans – and disappointed Orlando Pirates supporters – when he announced his latest Bafana Bafana squad.
Earlier in the week Broos named his 35-man preliminary squad to take on Zimbabwe (home) and Ghana (away) in their upcoming 2022 Soccer World Cup qualifiers.
For Kaizer Chiefs fans, they will be celebrating the addition of Keagan Dolly to the squad.
The Amakhosi forward has been in fine form lately, scoring three goals and registering four assists in this year’s PSL to date.
Dolly’s selection in Broos’ squad means that Amakhosi now have five players included – the most of all the DStv Premiership outfits.
He joins team-mates Bruce Bvuma, Njabulo Blom, Njabulo Ngcobo and S’fiso Hlanti.
In contrast, Orlando Pirates fans were left disappointed after having two players dropped from the squad.
Goodman Mosele was dropped after he was a no-show during South Africa’s recent preparation for their back-to-back matches against Ethiopia.
Mosele’s Buccaneers team-mate Vincent Pule was also left out of the recent squad, leaving Tshegofatso Mabasa as the lone Orlando Pirates representative.
