For this year's tournament, there are 17 local-based players in the Bafana Bafana team, while Zimbabwe boasts 14 from SA's top-flight and some from the National First Division (NFD) in their final 23-man squad. Uganda are expected to have Denis Onyango of Mamelodi Sundowns and Allen Kateregga, who spent the second half of the season on loan at Maritzburg United from Cape Town City. Other PSL players likely to be in Egypt playing for their countries include Madagascan international Andriamirado "Dax" Andrianarimanana, who's in the books of Kaizer Chiefs. There is a heartbreak for Kenyan defender Brian Onyango (Maritzburg United), who's out of the tournament with an injury. In the last edition in 2017, which Bafana didn't qualify for, there were 13 PSL players at the tournament.
