Notes

Thursday, 22 May 2003 - Although chosen by Jomo Sono, Quinton Fortune could not be contacted by the Safa and consequently misses out on playing against England.

Sunday, 18 May 2003 - South Africa have appointed their World Cup coach Jomo Sono to take charge of the friendly international against England next Thursday.  Sono replaces Ephraim Mashaba who has been sidelined after refusing to include several foreign-based players in his squad for the game in Durban.  Mashaba's future remains unclear after officials hinted that the coaching change would be for the England game only.

South Africa announced a new-look team on Sunday for the friendly international against England on Thursday.  The new squad was named just hours after regular coach Shakes Mashaba was replaced by Jomo Sono for the game in Durban.  Sono was appointed after a controversy over team selection which broke out when Mashaba left out key foreign-based players in a 24-man squad named last Thursday. Safa officials have said the fiery Mashaba would remain as South African coach but would play no part in Thursday's friendly.  The new squad features 12 players who went to the World Cup finals with Sono last year.

Thursday, 15 May 2003 - South Africa coach Ephraim Mashaba has resisted the temptation to recall several star players for the international friendly against England on May 22.  The squad of 22 is made up almost exclusively of home-based players, with no place for Leeds' Lucas Radebe, Manchester United's Quinton Fortune and Charlton's Shaun Bartlett.  Radebe and Bartlett, along with Celta Vigo striker Benni McCarthy, have been omitted from recent squads after falling out with the South African Football Association, while Fortune also fell foul of the authorities for pulling out of last month's friendly against Jamaica.  The absences mean six uncapped players have been called-up. They are Moeneeb Josephs, Tyren Arendse, Benson Mhlongo, Jabulani Mendu, David Radebe and Carlo Scott.
