From Phokeng Tshepo Setai and Alexander Richards, the curators of Exhibition Match '22:

Johannes Segogela’s sculptures are notable for their remarkable attention to detail: features on faces, clothing buttons, ties and especially shoes are rendered with care. Here, even the boots of the players have studs under them and each player sports a different pair. Segogela represents the South African players singing their national anthem, hands on hearts.
