South Africa Squad - Benni McCarthy Dropped From Bafana Final Squad

Bafana coach Carlos Alberto Parreira and the South African football association have officially submitted their 23-man squad list to FIFA ahead of the World Cup, with the Brazilian coach naming the final team at a press conference this morning.

McCarthy's fitness was said to be the deciding factor, as he seemed unfit compared to those in competition with him. The lack of his name in the list as it was called prompted a surprised reaction from many members of the media at the press conference.

The story is too old to be commented.
