South Africa-based midfielder Tšoarelo Bereng, who recently left Black Leopards for First Division Side-TS Sporting was the surprise omission from the final Likuena squad.
However, Senong announced that the door is still open for Bereng to make a comeback into the team as they felt his confidence was not at its best for the two matches against the West African country.
Manonyane’s Tumelo Ngatane is among the new faces in the squad and is hopeful to win his first Likuena cap in the two matches against Benin.
The likes of Thabo Lesooana, Thabo Matšoele and Thabane Malane are other players in the squad, who are still uncapped with the senior national team.
“We just completed our fourth-week of training with the local based players and I want to thank the Association for the support they have given us throughout this period,” Senong said.
“I should also thank the coaching staff, physical trainers and our medical team. We cannot forget our COVID-19 compliance officer because it the first time working under these conditions, which are different from what we were used to.
