Modiba added to Bafana squad

Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has added SuperSport United utility player Aubrey Modiba to his squad to face Seychelles in back-to-back matches this month.

Baxter had initially announced a 24-man squad on Monday, but has since added the 23-year old to increase the number to 25.

The two countries will face each other on October 13 and 16 in the race to secure qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Cameroon.

The first of the two matches will be played at FNB Stadium on October 13.

"Bafana Bafana coach Stuart Baxter has beefed up his 24-man squad by including SuperSport United's upcoming and dynamic midfielder Aubrey Modiba to the squad to face Seychelles on 13 and 16 October 2018 in 2019 AFCON qualifiers," a statement from SAFA said.

"Modiba was one of the young players Baxter took to Zambia for the Four Nations tournament and was one of the key performers in this year's Cosafa Senior Men's National Team tournament that took place in Polokwane."
