Cape Town - Stuart Baxter has named a 24-man Bafana Bafana squad for the upcoming 2019 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers against Seychelles taking place on October 13 and 16.

Baxter's charges began their AFCON campaign with an impressive 2-0 away win against African giants Nigeria before being held to a goalless draw by Libya at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

Baxter's men are currently second in Group E behind Libya on goal difference with both teams on four points after two rounds of fixtures.

"It doesn't matter where Dino is playing," Baxter told journalists. "Whether it's in the 1st or 10th division. I have seen some of the goals he's scoring, they are good goals. I think he's worth his wait in the team."

Cape Town City midfielder Thabo Nodada’s impressive performances for his club did not go unnoticed as he was rewarded with a call-up.

Bafana welcome Seychelles to the FNB Stadium on October 13 before squaring off in a return leg three days later at the Stade Linite.

Kick-off is at 15:00.
