Dayaan Casseim will lead South Africa in this edition of the World Cup. He has been part of the side since 2017. The 24-year old is in terrific form as he was adjudged as the player of the tournament after South Africa won the Nations Cup in 2022. He was the second-highest goal-scorer of the side, having scored three goals.
20-year-old Mustapha Casseim is already touted as the next big Hockey player for South Africa. The youngster was selected to represent the country in 2020 as a 18-year old and he has been impressing with his performances since then. In 13 appearances, he has so far scored 7 goals. He was also the third-highest goal-sorer for his country with 2 goals to his name at the FIH Nations Cup in 2022.
Tevin Kok played a crucial role in South Africa’s Nations Cup winning campaign. He was the highest-goalscorer in the tournament having netted four times. He will look to continue his form in the upcoming World Cup.
Best finish in World Cup
South Africa haven’t gone past the group stages in any edition of the World Cup so far. Their best performance came in 1994 and 2010. In both the editions, they finished 10th.
In 2018, they failed to win even a single match in the group stage. With that they finished at the last spot in the rankings.
