Bafana’s Starting XI

Bafana’s Starting XI

By Soccer-Laduma - Jan 08, 2013 03:42 PM

The Siya crew can reveal coach Gordon Igesund’s starting line-up for tonight’s international friendly at the Cape Town Stadium, as Bafana Bafana host Norway in the Mother City.

The coach has opted to play a 4-4-2 formation, with Lerato Chabangu playing as the second striker behind Katlego Mphela.

 

There is no surprise in goals, as Itumeleng Khune retains his place between the sticks. Igesund will play a flat back-four, with Tsepo Masilela at left back and Anele Ngcongca on the right. 

 

Bongani Khumalo, who will captain the national team, will be partnered by Siyabonga Sangweni in central defence.

 

In the midfield, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Thuso Phala have received call-ups to the starting line-up, alongside Kagisho Dikgacoi and Siphiwe Tshabalala. 


Yeye will play in a more advanced role, with Dikgacoi expected to play in his usual role, in front of the defence, with Shabba wide on the left and Phala on the right.

 

The attack will be spearheaded by Mphela, with Chabangu playing behind the target man.

 

Bafana Bafana starting XI: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Bongani Khumalo, Siyabonga Sangweni, Tsepo Masilela, Thuso Phala, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Lerato Chabangu and Katlego Mphela.

Truth must be told Sangweni run around kick other players & when it comes to defending nah the dude sucks. Khumalo less said the better.

We're still a long way of. School boy defensive errors, lack of cohesion in midfield pairing, lack of numbers when attacking & finally, an unfit striker. Bottom line, Bafana Bafana is a disaster in waiting. I stand to be proven wrong.......

This is more of the same. Pitso Mosimane team. We could have just stuck with Pitso and make things easier.
