2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers: Orlando Pirates star, Mamelodi Sundowns duo dropped from Bafana Bafana

Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has dropped Orlando Pirates striker Tshegofatso Mabasa and the Mamelodi Sundowns pair of Thapelo Morena and Mothobi Mvala from his final 24-man squad to face Zimbabwe and Ghana in 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifiers.

Group G leaders South Africa host Zimbabwe on November 11, before they travel to Cape Coast to meet Ghana three days later.

Morena is a surprise omission as Broos preferred Nyiko Mobbie and Kaizer Chiefs’ Njabulo Blom as possible candidates for the right-back position.

Midfielder Mvala on the other hand has been battling fitness issues since October’s back-to-back matches against Ethiopia.
