Belgium-based midfielder Ayanda Patosi and Orlando Pirates goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa are the two uncapped players named in the Bafana Bafana squad to face Malawi in a friendly match in Durban next week.

Coach Gordon Igesund also included defender Siyanda Xulu, who plays his football in Russia, on the 24-man list, while Kaizer Chiefs fullback Tsepo Masilela and Orlando Pirates midfielder Daine Klate return after long absences from the national set-up.

Katlego Mphela was named among a group of 12 players that will be added to the squad after the December 22 friendly at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.
