Goalkeeper Brian Baloyi and strikers Lucky Maselesele, Justice Sithole as well as David Radebe are Kaizer Chiefs representatives in the 30-men provincial Bafana squad that will take on Senegal in next Tuesday’s Nelson Mandela Inauguration Challenge.

Except for Baloyi, who has 17 international caps to his name, Sithole, Maselesele and Radebe are newcomers in the team, which comprise 30 players from which coach Shakes Mashaba will name the final 18 that will face the World Cup quarterfinalists on November 19.

Baloyi, who last donned the national team’s number one jersey last year, is one of the two goalkeepers called up alongside Andre Arendse of Santos.

Meanwhile, the 21-year-old Sithole is a national under-23 international with 15 appearance and six goals.

The last international goal he scored was in the All Africa Games qualifier against Malawi. He scored South Africa’s first goal of the match, while his club teammates Thabiso Malatsi scored from the penalty spot.
