Bafana will face Tanzania at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Phokeng near Rustenburg on Sunday at 15h00 and a win for Head Coach Baxter’s side will see Bafana progress to the semi-finals on Wednesday, July 05, where they will face the winners of a clash between Botswana and Zambia.

Bafana will be one of three nations to have won the COSAFA Cup four times (2002, 2007, 2008, and 2016) with Baxter eager to complete the country’s second back-to-back win of the trophy.

Former Orlando Pirates midfielder, Lehlogonolo Masalesa, was named as the captain of Baxter’s COSAFA squad, following his return to the national team, with the player set to make his Bafana debut on Sunday.

SAFA are yet to confirm Aubrey Ngoma’s replacement after the winger was withdrawn from the squad yesterday due to injury.
