2013 Africa Cup of Nations

Teams: Bafana v Cape Verde

Date: 19 January 2013

Venue: National Stadium

Soccer-Laduma can confirm Bafana Bafana's starting XI for their opening game of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations against Cape Verde, with coach Gordon Igesund making some surprise changes.

The biggest surprise comes upfront, where Kaizer Chiefs' Lehlohonolo Majoro will start ahead of Mamelodi Sundowns forward Katlego Mphela. Majoro will be supported by his Chiefs teammate Bernard Parker.

In-form Orland Pirates fullback Thabo Matlaba has also done enough to convince the Bafana coach that he should start, as he comes in ahead of Tsepo Masilela.

Siyabonga Sangweni and Bongani Khumalo will control the centre of defence while Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Kagisho Dikgacoi have been deployed to command the middle of the pitch.

Igesund will be hoping that Thuso Phala and Siphiwe Tshabalala cause havoc on the flanks, while Majoro and Parker have been in decent form in front of goal in the ABSA Premiership season so far.

South Africa struggled in their last two friendly matches heading into the African showpiece, having lost 1-0 to Norway before drawing 0-0 with Algeria. But the players as well as Igesund have confidently stated that they are ready to fight for the title and will have a point to prove on Saturday.

This is how they line-up:

Bafana: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Siyabonga Sangweni, Bongani Khumalo, Thabo Matlaba, Thuso Phala, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Bernard Parker, Lehlohonolo Majoro.

Cape Verde: Josimar Vozinha, Fernando Varela, Elvis Babanco, Neves Nando, Luis Platini, Tony Varela, Santos Nivaldo, Marco Soares, Ramos Nhuck, Ryan Mendes, Taveres Carlitos.

In south africa we have a serious prblm,we really like 2 complain about so many things hence we dont come up wth solutions,people r complaining about bafana being chiefs while they forget that the same chiefs they r complaining about has nothing to do wth the selection of bafana,now they r playing bad,they say chiefs is playing bad,if they were doing gud i wonder what there were saying,so lets stop this thing of supporting our respective teams in the hence of bafana cos we cnt change what is happening but support our bafana

@ Chloorkop-Style, Part of me agrees with that, the guy only raised to fame by his Marvellous 2010 goal, because to think of it after that what has he done to really be taken as really the best for BB.

It's impossible to win when you put quantity in the field and put quality on the bench. Quantity:Chiefs players Quality:Chabangu,Rantie,Oupa,M phela,Serero and May

Following the closure of the 2014 August transfer window, the Premier Soccer League has released the full squad of Orlando Pirates players that Coach Vladimir Vermezović will have at his disposal for the 2014/15 season to date.

Orlando Pirates coach Vladimir Vermezović is faced with the decision of whether or not to continue starting with Kermit Erasmus who has been in red hot form lately and introduce Lehlohonolo Majoro in the second half, or to start with Majoro who in recent games for the Buccaneers has made a strong case for a starting berth in Vermezović’s team.
