- Bafana are currently second in Group K following their 2-1 defeat against Morocco last year.
Bafana Bafana head coach Hugo Broos has named a 23-man squad for the decisive home and away Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Liberia.
South Africa host the West African nation on Friday, 24 March (18:00) at Orlando Stadium in Soweto, and play again four days later on Wednesday, 28 March (18:00 SA time) in the Liberian capital of Monrovia.
Bafana's ticket to Ivory Coast can be booked with victories in both fixtures before their final Group K match against Morocco in June.
Last week, Broos announced a 35-man preliminary squad which he has now trimmed down ahead of the national training camp.
Broos has picked in-form Mamelodi Sundowns striker Cassius Mailula, as well as Orlando Pirates top-scorer Monnapule Saleng. Both these players are seen as candidates for the PSL footballer of the season accolade.
The training camp commences on Sunday (19 March).
