31 May 2019 – Bafana Bafana midfielder Keagan Dolly has been ruled out of the 2019 COSAFA Cup due to another strain on his groin.

Dolly was called up to the South African Senior National Team’s COSAFA Cup squad to gain fitness ahead of the 2019 AFCON following a lengthy season on sidelines and his withdrawal from the last AFCON qualifier against Libya this year.

“Keagan had a groin discomfort during training and we have decided to withdraw him from the COSAFA tournament as a precaution. We will scan him on Monday so that we make a determination regarding the AFCON,” said Team doctor, Dr Thulani Ngwenya.

Tournament Head Coach David Notoane has called up Martizburg United’s Keletso Makgalwa to replace Dolly.

South Africa will play Botswana in the quarter-finals of the COSAFA Cup on Sunday 2 June 2019 at Princess Magogo Stadium in KwaMashu, Durban.
Kick off is 15h00.
