With new head coach Hugo Broos outlining his plans to rebuild the Bafana Bafana team around youth, there could be a changing of the guard when the Belgian arrives in the country ahead of a 2022 World Cup qualifying campaign. 

It could mean the end of the road for Bafana stalwarts, like Itumeleng Khune, but Broos was quite clear in his assessment that the current side was too "old". 

Change is definitely on the horizon and, here, Sport24 takes a dive into what a youthful team for the future could look like.
