David Notoane has confirmed his final squad for the CAF U23 Cup of Nations qualifiers against Congo.
The SA U23s will take on Congo during the FIFA break at the end of the month, with the winners of the two-legged tie qualifying for the finals in Algeria.
They will face Congo in the first leg at Dobsonville Stadium on 23 March before travelling to Brazzaville to play the second leg at the Massamba-Debat Stadium four days later.
Last week, Notoane named a provisional squad, but he has now finalised a strong list, including call-ups for Mduduzi Shabalala and Boitumelo Radiopane.
Thapelo Maseko, who had mistakenly been included in the Bafana Bafana squad earlier on Thursday, also makes Notoane’s selection.
Meanwhile, TS Galaxy’s Kamogelo Mahlangu was included in the final list, despite not appearing on the preliminary squad.
Midfielders Christos Retsos and Kgaugelo Chauke are the only two overseas-based players in the selection.
Here is full the squad:
