Kaizer Chiefs midfielder Mduduzi Mdantsane will link up with the Bafana Bafana for an international camp to replace Percy Tau.
PERCY TAU PULLS OUT FOR BAFANA BAFANA
Percy Tau, who bagged a brace in a 3-1 win over Ismaily in the Egyptian Premier League on Sunday, has excused himself from Bafana duty for ‘personal reasons.’ according to reports. Tau has four goals in four games in the league this term. He will miss the upcoming two friendly internationals against Eswatini and Ivory Coast.
The national team will host Isihlangu on Friday before travelling to Ivory Coast to face the next AFCON hosts on 17th October.
KAIZER CHIEFS STAR MDANTSANE CALLED UP
Amakhosi midfielder Mdu Mdantsane is the beneficiary of Tau’s decision to withdraw from the group. He has featured 10 times for Chiefs this term, with five of those appearances coming from the start. He, alongside fellow new signing Sibongiseni Mthethwa, forms the Kaizer Chiefs contingent in the Bafana squad.
Bafana’s kick off the 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign against Benin at home on November 13th. A week later, they travel to Rwanda on November 20th.
