Bafana’s Starting XI

The Siya crew can reveal coach Gordon Igesund’s starting line-up for tonight’s international friendly at the Cape Town Stadium, as Bafana Bafana host Norway in the Mother City.

The coach has opted to play a 4-4-2 formation, with Lerato Chabangu playing as the second striker behind Katlego Mphela.

 

There is no surprise in goals, as Itumeleng Khune retains his place between the sticks. Igesund will play a flat back-four, with Tsepo Masilela at left back and Anele Ngcongca on the right. 

 

Bongani Khumalo, who will captain the national team, will be partnered by Siyabonga Sangweni in central defence.

 

In the midfield, Reneilwe Letsholonyane and Thuso Phala have received call-ups to the starting line-up, alongside Kagisho Dikgacoi and Siphiwe Tshabalala. 


Yeye will play in a more advanced role, with Dikgacoi expected to play in his usual role, in front of the defence, with Shabba wide on the left and Phala on the right.

 

The attack will be spearheaded by Mphela, with Chabangu playing behind the target man.

 

Bafana Bafana starting XI: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Bongani Khumalo, Siyabonga Sangweni, Tsepo Masilela, Thuso Phala, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Reneilwe Letsholonyane, Siphiwe Tshabalala, Lerato Chabangu and Katlego Mphela.
