Goalkeeper  Itumeleng Khune will once again captain the side with a defence of Thamsanqa Mkhize, S’Fiso Hlanti, Morgan Gould and Clayton Daniels in front him.

The Bafana midfield will consist of Dean Furman, Bongani Zungu, Themba Zwane, Keagan Dolly and Sibusiso Vilakazi with Percy Tau playing on his own up front as a lone striker. 

The match kicks-off at 21:30 (SA time). 

On Friday, South Africa lost 2-0 to Senegal, effectively ending their chances of qualifying for the World Cup in Russia.
