2018 World Cup Qualifier Starting XI: Bafana Bafana v Burkina Faso 07 October 2017

2018 World Cup Qualifier 

Teams: Bafana Bafana v Burkina Faso 

Date: 07 October 2017

Venue: FNB Stadium

Bafana Bafana will host Burkina Faso in a crucial 2018 World Cup qualifier at the FNB Stadium this afternoon.

The match is scheduled to get underway at 15h00.

This clash is a must-win for Stuart Baxter's charges if they have any hope of qualifying for the tournament in Russia next year.

Bafana are currently rooted to the bottom of Group D with one point, after their victory over Senegal was taken away due match manipulation.

Baxter's charges have been forced by FIFA to replay the encounter with Senegal, which will be played on November 10, according to the SAFA calendar.

Burkina Faso, meanwhile, sit top of the Group level on points with Cape Verde but they have a superior goal difference.

When Bafana and Burkina Faso met on match day one in the qualifiers, they played out to a 1-1 draw in Ouagadougou.

Here's how they line up:

Bafana: Khune (c), Mkhize, Hlanti, Gould, Daniels, Zungu, Mokotjo, Zwane, Vilakazi, Jali, Tau.

Burkina: Yago, Kone Bakary, Malo, Nakoulma, A. Traore, Ouattara, Koffi, Kabore, B. Traore, Bayala, Toure.

Now we don't need favour to go to Russia it's up to us if we can beat Senegal twice it mean we are going to have 10 points which BKF and CPV can't reach.
