Sundowns Star Defender Replaces Tower For Bafana

Mamelodi Sundowns Star Defender Replaces Erick Mathoho For Bafana Bafana

By Soccer Laduma - Oct 01, 2017 06:31 PM

The South African Football Association has confirmed that Erick Mathoho has been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad, with a Mamelodi Sundowns defender replacing the Kaizer Chiefs man.

Mathoho is facing an extra two-game suspension from the national team set-up after receiving a red card booking in the country’s previous first-leg 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying encounter against Cape Verde last month, September.

SAFA has since confirmed that Sundowns’ Motjeka Madisha has received a call-up to the Bafana squad as a replacement for Mathoho who was initially included in the 25-man squad to face Burkina Faso this month.

Bafana will host Burkina at the FNB Stadium on October, 07, where the two sides will lock horns in a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifying match, which is a must win for Head Coach Baxter’s side.

@indidanee Pitso & Kekana competed with unknown factors hence they won these unknown awards. I thought they competed in Gauteng Sports Awards with the likes of Wydad team players. When did Pitso and his Dunusas landed in Mzantsi from Morocco? What is going to happen to the tickets he bought for his team to the CAF Semifinals? this is pure wasteful expenditure, Pitso is a domkop, he counted chicken before they hatched.

Mamelodi Sundowns coach Pitso Mosimane and captain Hlompho Kekana were among the winners at the Gauteng Sports Awards at SilverStar Casino in Krugersdorp on Sunday night. Mosimane was named Coach of the Year, beating Golden Lions rugby tactician Johannes Nthooro Mongalo and Kelsey White of Central Gauteng Water Polo. Kekana won the Sports Personality of the Year accolade ahead of Banyana Banyana star Janine van Wyk - who was denied the Sportwoman of the Year gong by Tanita Ramburuth Hurt - and athletes Luvo Manyonga and Sheldon Thomas. Kekan missed out on the Sportman of the Year prize to rower Lawrence Brittian. Sundowns were also crowned Sports Team of the Year, amid competition from the Lions and Wits Tang Soo Do (martial arts), following their CAF Champions League heroics last season.

@ominouskhosi , I agree with u my Zebrish .... In SA we are blessed with Cows ... Madisha is just One of Our Ordinary Cows ... Nothing special about him.

Same difference, Bafana must be dissolved and need to start again and find new players from somewhere else.. Madisha is also not strong he's just a defender nje even though he is better than Mathoho he still is weak. South African players think they are good but in fact they are the opposite. Lets face it , we do not have quality in SA.

Only fools paradise can suggest Bafana Bafana could topple Burkina Faso, its too little too late, BB are just adding numbers in this competition and just throwing every orange like Madisha in the mixed bag, i wont be suprised if Meyiwa is included next time

Mathoho is a cow, why did Baxter called him anyway? To kick opponents off the ball again?
