Foreign stars set for Aussie clash 15/03/04
Following their ignominious first round exit from the recent Africa Cup of Nations, Bafana Bafana get a chance to rise from the ashes when they take on Australia in London on March 30.

Styles Phumo, the caretaker coach of the national team, will be in charge and he has confirm that most of the overseas based players will be playing.

"This has been an encouraging development and more players have confirmed their availability for a possible call-up for this important game, said Phumo.

The players who have said that they will be play in London if they are named in the squad are goalkeepers Hans Vonk and Emille Baron, Mark Fish, Bradley Carnell, Mbulelo Mabizela, Aaron Mokoena, Matthew Booth, Delron Buckley, Jacob Lekgetho, Steven Pienar, Sibusiso Zuma, George Koumantarakis and Siyabonga Nomvete.

It will be the first time that Bafana Bafana will have most of their best players in the squad since former coach Shakes Mashaba was appointed nearly two years ago.

During his time senior players retired because Mashaba could not reach an agreement with them regarding the time they should report for camp before a match.

Phumo said that he is still to hear from Benni McCarthy, Shaun Bartlett and Quinton Fortune if they will be available for the encounter in London.

Fortune  looks unlikely to play after he suffered a knee injury in training with Manchester United last week.

Phumo also said that he will be using only overseas based players because he did not want to disrupt local Professional Soccer League which was nearing its climax.

"A good solid performance and a win against the Aussies will go a long way in healing the public anger. It is an important game for all of us" said Phumo.
