Kamohelo Mokotjo handed number 12 shirt for 2019 Africa Cup of Nations

A guide to the Bafana Bafana squad at this month's tournament

20 June 2019

He is number 12 for The Bees and Kamohelo Mokotjo will also wear the number 12 shirt for South Africa at the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The squads for the tournament in Egypt, which begins tomorrow, were confirmed last week with Kamohelo included after playing a key part in qualification. Bafana Bafana begin with a game against the Ivory Coast on Monday before taking on Namibia four days later. Their final Group D opponents are Morocco on Monday 1 July. 

Kamohelo is the only British-based player in the squad for the 1996 Champions and gives Brentford further representation with Julian Jeanvier also in the Guinea squad. The 28-year-old has earned 13 caps for his nation, playing the full 90 minutes of four of South Africa's last five competitive games. 

Bafana Bafana should have had a final warm-up game ahead of the tournament on Wednesday against Angola. However, the Angolans pulled out on the morning of the game citing a lack of training time since their arrival in Egypt. 

Ahead of the tournament, the South African FA have produced an in-depth guide to their squad and the upcoming tournament.
