Bafana Bafana have made their third goalkeeping change in the Africa Cup of Nations for their must-win final group C encounter against Ghana today.

Brilliant Khuzwayo would be in goal for the clash taking place at the Estadio de Mongomo at 8pm.

He replaces Jackson Mabokgwane, who played in the 1-1 draw against Senegal last week. In the opening 3-1 loss against Algeria, Darren Keet was the goalkeeper.

Coach Shakes Mashaba has made four changes to the starting 11 for the crucial Black Stars game.

Central defender Rivaldo Coetzee returns after picking up a knee injury in their opening match and missing the Senegal match.

He replaces Thulani Hlatshwayo, who was injured in the last match.

Midfielder Mandla Masango takes the place of Oupa Manyisa and striker Bongani Ndulula comes in for Sibusiso Vilakazi.

Bafana team: Brilliant Khuzwayo, Anele Ngcongca, Thabo Matlaba, Rivaldo Coetzee, Eric Mathoho, Dean Furman (captain), Andile Jali, Mandla Masango, Thuso Phala, Tokelo Rantie, Bongani Ndulula.
