Shakes Mashaba has added four new players to his 25-man squad ahead of their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying game against Senegal.

Bafana Bafana will face Senegal in the Group D qualifiers. They were drawn alongside Burkina Faso, Senegal and Cape Verde.

Bidvest Wits midfielder Daine Klate made it on to Mashaba’s list after inspiring the Clever Boys to the MTN8 trophy. The former Orlando Pirates playmaker was a notable omission from the Bafana Bafana squad that travelled to West Africa to face Burkina Faso.

Following Mamelodi Sundowns conquering Africa, Masandawana defenders Asavela Mbekile and Teboho Langerman got the nod.

Starting XI

Goalkeepers: Khune, Williams, Mhlongo.

Defenders: Mphahlele, Coetzee, Hlatshwayo, Daniels, Mbekile, Langerman, Mathoho, Matlaba.

Midfielders: Furman, Jali, Mahlangu, Patosi, Dolly, Klate, Makola, Kekana.

Strikers: Rodgers, Grobler, Veldwijk, Vilakazi, Serero, Phala.
