Johannesburg, South Africa (ADV) – The South African National men’s team Head Coach, Stuart Baxter has announced his 24-man squad to play against Libya in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers’ final round on Sunday at the Stade Taieb Mhiri in Sfax, Tunisia.

South Africa is placed second position in Group E and they need one point to book their place at the 2019 AFCON tournament, set for June in Egypt.

“It’s good to have almost everyone back on board because there is no doubt how crucial this match is – no one needs a reminder of that,” said Baxter, adding that his team is aware of their mission which is to win the match.

He noted that it is dangerous to play for a draw and their focus is on a win.

“They want it as much as we do, so it is going to be battle royale in Tunisia and I am confident my players will be ready for it. I am optimistic they will leave everything on the field to make sure we cross that line,” added Baxter.

Bafana Bafana will meet for camp on Saturday and depart on the same day for Tunisia.
