Mashaba names Bafana team
Bafana Bafana coach, Shakes Mashaba, on Tuesday named his team for the last two African Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifying games against Sudan and Nigeria.
With his new line-up, Mashaba had to choose a new goalkeeper after the death of Orlando Pirates and Bafana captain, Senzo Meyiwa, who was shot and killed on the 26th of October.
Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper Brilliant Khuzwayoc has since been called up for the position as well as Platinum Stars goalkeeper, Siyabonga Mpotsane.
Bafana Bafana will be facing Sudan on the 15th of November at the Moses Mabhida Stadium in Durban.
A win against Sudan will guarantee Bafana a place in the 2015 AFCON tournament; which will be the second game against Sudan. South Africa won the first match 3-0.
Mashaba said that the game will be played in honour of Meyiwa.
South Africa will then take on Nigeria’s Super Eagles, on the 19th of November for the final AFCON qualifying match.
