For a long time, South African football has been in a phase of building, but the recently selected Bafana Bafana and under-23s squad should make the South African Football Association and its coaches believe that there is enough talent to take the national team to the next level if things are done properly.

The squad Hugo Broos has selected for Bafana Bafana's 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers features the likes of Cassius Mailula, Teboho Mokoena, Luke Le Roux, Mihlali Mayambela and Lyle Foster, while players such as Kobamelo Kodisang and Thapelo Maseko are knocking on the door for future senior team call-ups.
