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The South African Football Association has confirmed that Erick Mathoho has been withdrawn from the Bafana Bafana squad, with a Mamelodi Sundowns defender replacing the Kaizer Chiefs man.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