Bafana Bafana coach Ephraim ‘Shakes’ Mashaba has named the starting line up that will play Ghana tonight (Tuesday, 11 October 2016) in a friendly international at Moses Mabhida Stadium (Kick off 19h00).
Mashaba has made a number of changes to the team that will play Ghana tonight from the one that played Burkina Faso last Saturday in a 2018 Russia FIFA World Cup qualifier.
“There were always going to be changes in personnel but we thought because of the travelling, we needed some fresh legs hence we went for this team. It is a strong side that should compete,” said Mashaba.
Brighton Mhlongo will start in goals while the back four comprises of Abbubaker Mobara, Isaac Nhlapo, captain Thulani Hlatshwayo and Thabo Matlaba.
The midfield is made up of Ayanda Patosi, Oupa Manyisa, Dean Furman and May Mahlangu while gangling Eleazer Rodgers and Sibusiso Vilakazi will spearhead the strike force.
