Bafana, Zim clash set for Orlando

2013-09-05 15:34

Bafana Bafana’s friendly match against Zimbabwe will be played at Orlando Stadium on Tuesday, the SA Football Association (Safa) has announced.

Polokwane City had originally expressed interest in hosting Cosafa’s biggest derby but pulled out, Safa said today in a statement.

Although King Zwelithini in Durban and Atteridgeville’s Lucas Moripe came in for reckoning, Bafana coach Gordon Igesund said Orlando Stadium would provide an ideal atmosphere for the duel.

“I am happy that the match will take place at one of the country’s home of soccer, and playing Zimbabwe always brings the best out of my players,” Igesund said.

Bafana squad: Itumeleng Khune, Wayne Sandilands, Darren Keet, Eric Mathoho, Tshepo Gumede, Thabo Nthethe, Tsepo Masilela, Buhle Mkhwanazi, Thulani Hlatshwayo, Marc van Heerden, Hlompho Kekana, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Bongani Zungu, Thuso Phala, Siphiwe Tshabalala, David Mathebula, Ruzaigh Gamildien, Lerato Chabangu, Luyolo Nomandela, Bernard Parker, Lebogang Manyama, Siphelele Mthembu, Kermit Erasmus.
