Bafana Bafana coach Hugo Broos has been forced to drop Percy Tau from his squad to face Ethiopia in two back-to-back World Cup Qualifiers.
The South African talisman has been made unavailable after picking up an injury during Bafana’s 1-0 win over Ghana in Johannesburg at the start of his month.
Coach Hugo Broos has also overlooked the two overseas-based attackers Luther Singh and Gift Links who both did duty against Ghana. In-form Mamelodi Sundowns duo Rivaldo Coetzee and Lyle Lakay remain controversially left out.
New faces include Orland Pirates duo Vincent Pule and Tshegofatso Mabasa.
