Bafana Announce XI For Lesotho Friendly

Bafana Bafana have announced their starting XI to face Lesotho in a friendly match ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations.

Hugo Broos and his men have only this one preparation game before traveling to Ivory Coast, where they will kick off the tournament on 16 January against Mali.

They will then face Namibia five days later before concluding the group stages against Tunisia.

After their camp in Stellenbosch, Bafana have some injury worries, with Mothobi Mvala suffering a groin injury and undergoing medical tests whether he will be fit in time for the tournament.

In addition, Themba Zwane and Ronwen Williams will also be rested against Lesotho on Wednesday due to minor injuries.

Bafana have only lost one of their last 13 games under Broos, the shock defeat to Rwanda on a water-logged pitch, and will hope to beat world number 148 at Lucas Moripe Stadium in Atteridgeville on Wednesday.

The match will be played behind closed doors with no media or fans allowed.

Here is how they line up:

Bafana XI: Mothwa, Mudau, Sibisi, Xulu, Modiba, Sithole, Mokoena, Tau, Mayambela, Maseko, Makgopa

Subs: Williams, Mobbie, Zwane, Lepasa, Monare, Mashego, Kekana, Goss, Morena, Adams, Appollis
