South Africa coach Hugo Broos invites new players for France and Guinea friendlies

Published on: 14 March 2022

South Africa boss Hugo Broos has included few new names to his squad for the friendlies against Guinea and France later this month. 

The Portuguese trainer is building a strong team for the upcoming 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers in June.

Mamelodi Sundowns duo Lyle Lakay and Rivaldo Coetzee are expected to join the team for the friendlies on March 25 and March 29.

Other names include Goodman Mosele, Bandile Shandu and Thabang Monare of Orlando Pirates.

“These games are an opportunity for us to try some things,” Broos said during the announcement of his team. “You cannot try things when you are playing qualifiers; you have to be sure when you put your team on the pitch. You have to be sure that those are the right players in the right positions.

“Now we can try [new things] and we can see what those players are giving to the team. I’m thinking about Mosele, I’m thinking about Shandu, I’m thinking about Lakay,” shared Broos.

“Those players can be an improvement for us. The result for me is not so important, not at all. But I want to see if the things we try in those games can be an improvement for the team or not.”

South Africa play Guinea in Belgium on 25 March and France in Lille four days later.
