PSL

Starting XI: South Africa v Algeria

International friendly

Teams: South Africa - Algeria

Date: 12 January 2013

Venue: Orlando Stadium

 

South Africa will host Algeria tonight in their final friendly before the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) kicks off on home soil next week.

The national side will hope to enter CAF's showpiece event with some positive momentum after losing 1-0 to Norway at Cape Town Stadium on Tuesday.

Bafana Bafana, continental champions in 1996, are ranked 87th in the world - 68 places lower than the north African visitors.

Gordon Igesund's men will open the AFCON against Cape Verde at the National Stadium on January 19, with Morocco and Angola making up the rest of Group A.

Algeria, kings of Africa in 1990, have been paired with 2012 finalists Ivory Coast, neighbours Tunisia and Togo in an imposing Group D.

This is how they line up:

South Africa: Itumeleng Khune, Anele Ngcongca, Thabo Matlaba, Bongani Khumalo, Siyabonga Sangweni, Kagisho Dikgacoi, Thuso Phala, Dean Furman, Katlego Mphela, Thulani Serero, Bernard Parker.

Algeria: Rias M'Bohli, Mehdi Mostefa-Sbaa, Essaid Belkalem, Djamel Mesbah, Azzeddine Doukha, Sofiane Feghouli, Hamer Bouazza, Carl Medjani, Foued Kadir, Adlane Guedioura, Khaled Lemmouchia.
