    Bafana Bafana midfielder Keagan Dolly has been ruled out of the 2019 Cosafa Cup after sustaining another strain to his groin.

    The 26-year-old was called up to the national team’s Cosafa Cup squad to gain full fitness ahead of the 2019 African Cup of Nations (Afcon) after his injury plagued season.

    Bafana team doctor Thulani Ngwenya experience discomfort to his groin during training while confirming that they will determine the extend of his injury when he goes for a scan on Monday.

    ‘Keagan had a groin discomfort during training and we have decided to withdraw him from the Cosafa tournament as a precaution. We will scan him on Monday so that we make a determination regarding the Afcon,’ Ngwenya told Safa.net.

    Coach David Notoane has since called up Maritzburg United’s Keletso Makgalwa to replace Dolly in the squad.

    Bafana Bafan are set to take on Botswana in the Cosafa Cup quarter-final at the Princess Magogo Stasium on Sunday with kick off set for 3pm.
