Kaizer Chiefs defender Edmilson Dove and Orlando Pirates’ Richard Ofori will be heading to next year’s AFCON.
It was a big weekend for Dove’s Mozambique and Ofori’s Ghana in terms of AFCON qualification.
Dove hasn’t featured for the Amakhosi this season due to injury however he was named on Mozambique’s bench for yesterday’s victory over Benin.

The victories mean both Mozambique and Ghana have successfully qualified for AFCON 2024 which takes place in Ivory Coast between 13 January and 11 February 2023.
