Starting XI: Ke Yona V Chiefs

Nedbank Cup

Teams: Nedbank Ke Yona V Kaizer Chiefs

Date: 2 February 2014

Venue: Lucas Moripe Stadium

The defending Champions of the 2013 Nedbank Cup, Kaizer Chiefs, will be taking on the Nedbank Ke Yona Team at Lucas Moripe Stadium on Sunday.

The much anticipated clash between the two teams will be featuring some of the future stars from Chiefs Development.

The Ke Yona team is made up of 23 soccer players who have made the final cut will take on the champions of the 2013 Nedbank Cup. They have been hand-picked by a panel of well-known South African soccer legends.

First team Amakhosi assistant coach Doctor Khumalo says they will not be taking the Ke Yona team lightly.

“We will field a combination of some of the Development players and the First Team players. The game will not be isolated from our broader development programme. It is part of our bigger goal of producing top quality footballers at Chiefs,” said Khumalo.

“On paper it's a friendly, but we want to instil a winning mentality to these young lads. Chiefs’ brand will also be at stake hence we have prepared accordingly. The main focus will be on discipline and for the lads to enjoy themselves.

“Some of the lads on display are semi-professional already. They are developing and we are polishing them for the future. We want to make them understand the game at the professional level. We teach them the Chiefs way of doing things. The fans will also see a little bit of what I used to do in the field as some of the lads have got some skills.”

“We don't know much about the opponents as they are a select team of guys around the country. They will be dangerous to play against. They are a closed book, but they'll be more dangerous because of their hunger to showcase their skills and to attract the attention of the scouts. All in all we will not dance to their tune, they must dance to our tune.”

Here are how they line up.

Nedbank Ke Yona: Chibwe, Sdeba, Maseti, Mkhwanazi, Davies, Mthini, Dunn, Oompie, Sinqa, Baloyi, Pienaar.

Chiefs: Khuzwayo, Tshangane, Gordinho, Macheke, Jambo, Cele, Matombo, Baloyi, Moshobane, Ekstein, Mynhardt.
