Baxter Begins At Bafana, Squad Selection First Challenge

Stuart Baxter Went To Work At SAFA House Today

By Soccer Laduma - May 23, 2017 10:44 AM

Stuart Baxter’s life as head coach of Bafana Bafana begins today as he heads into the SAFA offices for the first time.

Read: Baxter Turns Eye To Nigeria 

Baxter, who opted to prioritise putting together his squad for the Africa Cup of Nations clash with Nigeria over travelling with SuperSport United to Gabon, was appointed earlier this month, but until now has been focusing on his club football.

The Englishman will name his squad for the clash with the Super Eagles on Thursday afternoon and is now dedicating the next couple of days to selecting a side that can engineer their first ever win on Nigerian soil.

Baxter was the last, and only, coach to lead Bafana to victory over Nigeria as they won 2-1 back in 2004, but they will need to get a result if they’re to progress in AFCON qualification this time around.

Having reported for duty at SAFA House for the first time today, the former Kaizer Chiefs coach will be focusing on picking his squad for the upcoming game. He will revert to club duty at SuperSport United for the final Absa Premiership game of the season against Platinum Stars on Saturday.

Matsatsantsa take on CF Mounana in the CAF Confederation Cup tonight.

@Man Theo Veldjwik Is a Serious COW that even Kurt Erasmus outplayed Veldjwik's entire career in 18 minutes when he scored the hatrick in just 18 minutes. SO I rather go for Aubrey Ngoma and Kurt and Kermit Erasmus than Veldjwik
