Kamohelo Mokotjo called-up to South Africa squad

Midfielder included for two upcoming World Cup Qualifiers

21 August 2017

Kamohelo Motokjo has been called up to the South Africa squad for next month’s World Cup Qualifiers against Cape Verde. The Brentford midfielder is part of Stuart Baxter’s 25-man squad for the match at the Estadio Nacional Stadium in Cape Verde on Friday 1 September and the return game at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban the following Tuesday, 5 September.

Bafana Bafana are currently second in Group D of qualifying for the 2018 FIFA World Cup with four points from two games. September’s opponents Cape Verde prop up the table after a pair of defeats to Burkina Faso and Senegal. The five group winners will automatically qualify for next summer’s tournament in Russia so two wins next month will go a long-way to securing South Africa’s participation.

Kamohelo has six caps for his nation, the most recent of which came in a 3-1 friendly win over Guinea-Bissau in March. He is the only British based player included in the group which features players from South Africa, Holland, Turkey, France, and Portugal.
