Bafana Bafana coach Shakes Mashaba and his technical team have named the final 24-man team to travel to Sudan on Wednesday.

Among those not travelling to Khartoum for the opening 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier are goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, Buhlebuyeza Mkhwanazi, Ayanda Patosi, Bonginkosi Ntuli, Ronwen Williams, Bongani Zungu, Jabulani Shongwe, George Lebese, Percy Tau and Siyanda Ngubo.

Khune is carrying a grade 3 stress fracture on the foot bone, while Patosi failed to arrive for the camp after failing to connect from Belgium.
