Liberia have included their top striker William Jebor in the squad that will take on South Africa in the 2023 Afcon qualifiers later this month.
  • The Lone Stars are hoping to cause an upset
  • Jebor tends to dazzle in competitive matches
  • A spot in the 2023 Afcon finals is at stake

The deadly striker, who plays for Maltese giants Valleta, has scored in each of his last five competitive matches for the Lone Stars - including a hat-trick against Djibouti and winning goal against Zimbabwe in the 2019 Afcon qualifiers.

The top two teams from the group will qualify for the finals which are scheduled to be hosted by Ivory Coast next year.

WHAT IS NEXT FOR BAFANA?: Bafana will host Liberia at Orlando Stadium.

The Lone Stars would then face off with Broos' side at Samuel Kanyon Doe Stadium.
