South African U23 coach Owen Da Gama has announced his squad to face Palestine this coming Saturday in a friendly international.
Although it has been announced that three Orlando Pirates players in Menzi Masuku, Mbongeni gumede and Sibusiso Mahlangu have been included in the team, Da Gama monitored his charges on Tuesday morning as they trained at the University of Johannesburg sports complex.
Apart from the trip to the Middle East to tussle against the Palestinians, the U-23s are preparing for the 2016 Olympic qualifiers.
Kaizer Chiefs are the only side with six players in the squad, however, all are set to battle for the starting berth and convince the coach, known as Rubber Doll that they’re ready.
